There won’t be any tie for the title this season, now that the league has added Nebraska and instituted a conference championship game.

Michigan State and Ohio State are both unranked, and after facing the Buckeyes, the Spartans will have an open date before hosting rival Michigan. After that, no rest for the weary. Wisconsin and Nebraska are both top 10 teams right now, and the Spartans will have to play the Cornhuskers on the road.

“We’re ready,” Michigan State receiver B.J. Cunningham said. “The Big Ten will need to be won on the road, and that’s what we’re going to have to do. We’ve played in tough atmospheres before.”
