The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions battle for control of the Big Ten's Leaders Divions
The Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) put their undefeated record on the line Saturday when they visit Happy Valley to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions (5-2, 3-0). The two storied programs are playing this season under sanctions prohibiting post-season play for either team, but head into this weekend's matchup undefeated in Big Ten play and sitting atop the Leaders Division.
With post-season play off limits, winning the regular season division title remains a goal and the winner will emerge with control of the Leaders Division. Lurking one game behind in the division, Wisconsin (6-2, 3-1) hosts Michigan State (4-4, 1-3).
In the Legends Division, an equally important matchup has first-place Michigan (5-2, 3-0) visiting second-place Nebraska (5-2, 2-1).
Here is the full slate of Big Ten games in Week 9:
Michigan State Spartans at Wisconsin Baders (12 p.m. ET, ABC)
Ohio State Buckeys at Penn State Nittany Lions (5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN/ESPN2)
