Penn State beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game while Ohio State and Michigan are spending their Saturday night sitting at home watching.
Wolverines OL Erik Magnuson wasn’t sulking, however. Instead, he has jokes about it. He says the two best teams already played last week. The Buckeyes beat Michigan 30-27 in double overtime.
It's weird that the big ten championship is today when the best two teams in the big ten played last weekend…

The loss last week eliminated the Wolverines from the Big Ten East Division race, while the Buckeyes finished tied atop the standings with the Nittany Lions. Penn State advanced to the title game thanks to its victory against Ohio State this season, giving the Nittany Lions the tiebreaker.
The Buckeyes will likely reach the College Football Playoff, though, while Michigan needs a Clemson loss to Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday night to have any chance.
