2012 Big Ten Tournament Bracket And Schedule For Day Three

The 2012 Big Ten Tournament bracket remains clean without an upset among the top seeds. After the Ohio State Buckeyes put away the Purdue Boilermakers on Friday night, all four top seeds that earned a bye in the tournament had won to advance to the semifinals on Saturday.

That doesn't mean it was easy for the top seeds. The Buckeyes will face the No. 2 seed Michigan Wolverines who needed a late three-pointer to push their game with Minnesota to overtime before eventually winning.

No. 1 seed Michigan State rolled through Iowa and will face No. 4 Wisconsin. The Badgers led throughout their game against Indiana but needed seven three-pointers and 30 points from reserve Rob Wilson, only his second double-figure scoring game of the season.

Here is the time and television information for the Big Ten Tournament action on Saturday along with a link to an updated bracket:

Game 9: No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 4 Wisconsin, 1:40 p.m., CBS Sports
Game 10: No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 3 Ohio State, 25 minutes following Game 9 conclusion, CBS Sports

Bracket: Updated Big Ten Tournament bracket
