With only two weekends remaining before postseason play, the pursuit for Big Ten supremacy continues to heat up in a conference race that is chock-full of parity.  A trio of conference matchups decorate this weekend's schedule, highlighted by a Halloween showdown between the top two teams in the current Big Ten standings in Wisconsin (3-2-0, 6-7-2) and Penn State (2-1-1, 9-5-2). The Nittany Lions will look to dethrone the Badgers from their top spot as they welcome Todd Yeagley and company to State College for a 3 p.m. ET contest. The Big Ten Network will air coverage of the game on tape delay on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.

Sunday features a pair of Big Ten matchups as Ohio State travels to Indiana for a 2 p.m. ET contest. The Buckeyes and Hoosiers are currently tied for fourth place in the conference standings with Michigan State, each owning 2-3-0 ledgers against conference opponents. The Spartans will take a break from Big Ten action as the square off against San Diego State at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday afternoon. Rounding out the weekend slate, Michigan will host No. 12 Northwestern in a game to be televised live on the Big Ten Network. The Wildcats are currently tied with Penn State in the runner-up spot, sitting a mere two points behind in the race for the regular season conference title.
