Indiana clinches share of first B1G title since 2002

Two seasons removed from a 12-20 record, including a 3-15 Big Ten clip, the Indiana Hoosiers are Big Ten champions. On Sunday, Indiana clinched a share of its first Big Ten crown since 2002, thanks to No. 10 Michigan State’s loss at No. 4 Michigan and No. 16 Wisconsin’s loss to Purdue.

The Hoosiers (25-4, 13-3) can make it an outright title with a win in either of their final two games: vs. Ohio State (Tuesday) or at Michigan (Sunday). They also can lose both games and still be the lone champ, as long as Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin all lose one of their final two games.

Indiana, which owns 21 all-time Big Ten titles, hasn’t won the title outright since 1993.

Here’s a look at how Indiana became Big Ten champs:
