Big Ten Geeks: Spartan Shooting

In the first epic clash of the conference season, Michigan State held serve at home against a relentless Ohio State team. Does this give the Spartans the inside track on the Big Ten title? Let’s dive in. In a lot of ways, this was a tough game to figure. MSU fans can point to the fact that their team led nearly the entire game, and that Michigan State’s ability to build a 17-point lead over the first 31:58 of game time is indicative of who is the better team.

B1G Whiteboard: Who else is pumped for OSU-MSU?

One week of Big Ten action is in the books, as Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State continue to lead the way.
