We are hours away from kickoff of the 2014 Big Ten Football Championship Game between Big Ten West champ Wisconsin and Big Ten East champ Ohio State.

Leading up to the game, fans from both schools gathered at Big Ten Fan Fest at the Indiana Convention Center, which is right outside of Lucas Oil Stadium, the site of Saturday night's game.

I spent the day at Fan Fest and tracked down some of the best jerseys, costumes, memorabilia pieces and other fun sights leading up to the big game.

Track tonight's game on our Big Ten scoreboard.

Here's what I got.

Best dressed Ohio State fan: The one-and-only Larry "Buckeyeman" Lokai.
