Dang it, Michigan, you had one job. All you had to do was beat South Carolina and the Big Ten would have a perfect record in the 2017-2018 bowl season.

Could the Big Ten actually get kept out of the College Football Playoff?

That is just one of the many storylines to follow on what should be an amazing Saturday of conference championship games, including the showdown in Indianapolis between Wisconsin and Ohio State.

Here at the Big Ten Bites office (ok it’s one guy at a computer), we like to be informative and opinionated while giving updates on all 14 B1G teams, but from time to time we also like to provide a public service for fans of Big Ten Teams.

The Old Oaken Bucket. Paul Bunyan’s Axe. “The Game.” It’s rivalry week in the B1G and the final week of the college football regular season.

So the Big Ten Championship Game is set. Wisconsin vs. Ohio State.

However, there is still much to mystery to solve before either the Badgers or Buckeyes arrive in Indianapolis.
