Can’t wait for Saturday? Me neither. The top storylines for this weekend: Michigan State, Wisconsin and Penn State all control their destiny in their respective divisions. Can each stay on track?

That means the Big Ten needs other leagues or schools to fail to have enough bowl eligible teams to fill their bowl slots.
