Week 11 in the Big Ten could play a major role in seeing which teams will play in the inaugural Big Ten Conference Championship Game December 3 in Indianapolis. However, division races aside, the Penn State matchup against Nebraska is likely to draw the most eyeballs, after the week the University and the Nittany Lions have had in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky investigation. Penn State will play a game without Joe Paterno's involvement for the first time since 1950, after the head coach was fired late Wednesday evening.
