If you’re on Twitter, you can vote in our ongoing series of Big Ten Twitter polls for our weekday TV show #BTNLive weekdays at 6 p.m. ET. On tonight’s #BTNLive show, our experts discuss this question: Is this week’s Big Ten Championship showdown the biggest game for the Big Ten Conference since Michigan vs. Ohio State in 2006?

The Big Ten title game is going to be great. Not only do you have 11-1 Michigan State vs. 12-0 Ohio State, you have Michigan State’s No. 1 defense vs. Ohio State’s No. 1 offense.

That got BTN’s Mike Hall wondering if this was the biggest Big Ten game since Michigan-Ohio State in 2006.
As I suspected, Ohio State ascended from No. 3 to No. 2 in the BCS standings following its win at Michigan and the loss of BCS No. 1 Alabama to BCS No. 4 Auburn on Saturday.
Get me some visine. My vision must be blurry. I thought I just saw two Big Ten teams ranked in the top 10 of the BCS Standings — and both teams are well deserving of it. Really? This is happening?
