There are a couple of caveats to this. First, Ohio State is in danger of not qualifying for the Big Ten Championship due to a lack of games. The Buckeyes, who are currently dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak, will have to play their final two games to be eligible for a division title.
Second, the Big Ten has said it will try to avoid rematches from the regular season. That means Penn State and Nebraska likely won’t play on Championship Weekend.
These standings could also see a shakeup over the course of the next two weeks.
If Indiana doesn’t jump Ohio State, the Hoosiers’ potential matchup with Iowa will be one of the most-anticipated of the entire weekend. The Hawkeyes have won four straight games and Indiana’s only loss this season is a seven-point defeat to Ohio State.
Maryland-Wisconsin also has some intrigue as a matchup between two potentially prolific offenses who have been derailed this season by COVID-19.
Championship Weekend is scheduled for Dec. 19
