Big Ten race ends in 3-way tie
Question of the Day
The Big Ten race won’t officially be decided until Dec. 5 when the final BCS standings come out.
No. 5 Wisconsin, however, left little doubt which of the three teams that tied for first would be going to the Rose Bowl.
The Badgers, No. 8 Ohio State and No. 11 Michigan State all finished 11-1 and 7-1 in conference. The BCS standings will be used to break the tie. Wisconsin held the advantage coming into the weekend and its 70-23 victory against Northwestern should keep the Badgers ahead of their rivals.
Ohio State beat Michigan 37-7, the Buckeyes seventh straight victory in that heated rivalry.
Michigan State beat Penn State 28-22. The Spartans beat Wisconsin this season, but they also had the most lopsided loss of the three teams.
Wisconsin handed Ohio State its only defeat and the Buckeyes and Spartans did not play.
Also decided on Saturday was the ACC’s Atlantic Division. Florida State earned that when Maryland beat North Carolina State 38-31.
No. 4 TCU 66, New Mexico 17
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) _ Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes before leaving with an elbow injury and TCU capped its second straight undefeated regular season with a second consecutive Mountain West championship.
The next stop for the BCS-busting Horned Frogs could very well be the Rose Bowl.
TCU (12-0, 8-0 Mountain West) has been jockeying with Boise State for a possible BCS appearance and got a major boost from Nevada, which knocked off the previously unbeaten Broncos on Friday night to clear the Frogs an easier path to Pasadena.
If form holds next week across the college football landscape, it could be a purple Rose Bowl.
No. 5 Wisconsin 70, Northwestern 23
