Coaches always say: You play the games to remember in November. Well, my calendar says “November.” While this Saturday may lack some pizzazz on the surface, there still are several contests that will go a long way toward shaping the Legends and Leaders division races.
Here we are in the final week of the Big Ten regular season and just as everybody expected the defending champion Northwestern Wildcats and seven-time national champion Indiana Hoosiers are battling for the championship – the two teams play tonight at 8 p.m. ET on 8 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2GO. Only, it’s not quite that simple as Michigan State and Penn State are alive as well.
Indiana’s Stephen Houston proclaimed it in his BTN interview following the Hoosiers’ win at Illinois last week. On the field, Houston proclaimed the Hoosiers are a threat in the Leaders Division. At 1-3 in the Big Ten, Indiana controls its destiny in a division paced by a pair of ineligible teams.
With the Big Ten expected to compete for a seventh straight national championship, BTN will provide extensive live coverage of Big Ten Wrestling for the 2012-13 season on television and online. The television schedule includes a pair of Monday night meets live in primetime; a late-season showdown between Penn State and Iowa, which between them have accounted for the past five National Champions; and live coverage of both the Midlands Championships and the Big Ten Wrestling Championships.
After earning it first Big Ten Championship since 2008 and sixth overall on last weekend, Penn State earned the No. 1 seed and an automatic spot in the semifinals of the 2012 Big Ten Field Hockey Tournament. The tournament starts today and the first round is shown live on the Big Ten Digital Network. Friay’s semifinals and Sunday’s championship air on BTN/BTN2Go.
