The Ohio St. Buckeyes finished the year by getting swept at Indiana, but they were able to snag the final berth as the No. 6 seed thanks to tiebreakers over Illinois and Minnesota. Ohio State (31-25, 11-13) will play No. 3 seed Penn State (29-25, 15-9) in the second game of the tournament at approximately 3:30pm on Wednesday at Huntington Bank Park in Columbus.

The tournament gets underway at 12:05pm on Wednesday when No. 4 seed Nebraska (33-21, 14-10) plays No. 5 seed Michigan State (35-19, 13-11). Purdue (41-12, 17-7) earned the No. 1 seed and will play the lowest seed of Wednesday's winners on Thursday. Indiana (30-26, 16-8) drew the other bye as the No. 2 seed.

All games in the tournament will be televised on Big Ten Network, and Ohio State has a slight advantage by playing close to home in Columbus. The full tournament schedule can be found here.
