The Big Ten regular season has finally come to a conclusion and the final standings are in. The Penn State Nittany Lions closed out a disappointing season on Sunday with a loss to Michigan at home. The Nittany Lions will now head to Indianapolis as the No. 12 seed in the Big Ten tournament to play in the post season, but that won't change the fact that in the regular season Penn State finished with just a 4-14 record in the Big Ten, coming in last place.

The Ohio State Buckeyes finished up as the Big Ten regular season champions after a thrilling win over Michigan State on Sunday. Below you will find the final Big Ten standings.
