Around the Big Ten: Week 14 by the numbers

The Big Ten champion will be crowned in Indianapolis tonight when Nebraska (10-2, 7-1) clashes with Wisconsin (7-5, 4-4) at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Badgers will be aiming for their second-consecutive conference crown while the Huskers are in search of their first ever Big Ten title.

It has been a long and turbulent year in the Midwest with both Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) and Penn State (8-4, 6-2), arguably the two best squads in the Leaders Division, ineligible for postseason play due to NCAA sanctions, but either NU or UW can earn the opportunity to restore conference pride in Pasadena against Pac-12 champion Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

Here is a comprehensive statistical overview of the Big Ten Championship game, as well as a look at individual conference accolades and team statistical rankings
