While a Michigan State win vs. lowly Indiana today will seal the Spartans a spot in the inaugural Big Ten championship game, the game most eyes will be focused on is the one between Michigan and Nebraska, two top-20 ranked teams sitting just a game behind MSU in the Big Ten's Legends Division. 

 

Each team is 8-2 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten with a fighting chance to catch MSU. It's unlikely either will surpass MSU, but there's still a lot at stake, particularly a better bowl game. The two teams last played in 2005 in the Alamo Bowl when Nebraska edged out the Wolverines, 32-28.
