Michigan State Vs. Penn State: Week 13 Big Ten College Football Schedule

Although some of this week’s Big Ten matchups aren’t particularly exciting, Penn State fans will want to keep their eyes on the ticker just in case anything strange happens – the Nittany Lions look like they could be headed to the Gator Bowl, but much could happen this week to change that. Here’s a look at this week’s Big Ten schedule. All the games are on Saturday, and all the times are Eastern.

12:00 Indiana at Purdue, Big Ten Network. You can safely ignore this one – these two teams are playing for pride (and for Indiana head coach to keep his job).

12:00 Michigan at Ohio State, ABC.

12:00 Michigan State at Penn State, ESPN2. This game is critical, for obvious reasons – a big win against a ranked team to end the season would be huge for the Nittany Lions.

3:30 Iowa at Minnesota, Big Ten Network. An Iowa loss would be terrific for Penn State, since it could win the Nittany Lions entrance into a better bowl, but a Golden Gophers win looks extremely unlikely.

3:30 Northwestern at Wisconsin, ABC.

10:15 Illinois at Fresno State, ESPN2. This game would only really matter if Penn State loses, and possibly not even then, since a bowl committee could easily choose the 4-4 Nittany Lions over the 4-4 Illini even though Illinois holds a tie-breaker against Penn State.
