Ohio State-Penn State still matters amid sanctions

Published 9:10am Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Only three teams in the Big Ten are unbeaten in league play — and two of them are ineligible for the postseason.

That takes a bit of the luster from this weekend’s impressive slate of games — but not all of it.

No. 9 Ohio State and Penn State are both undefeated in conference, and they’re playing each other this weekend. Thanks to sanctions, neither can compete for the Big Ten championship or go to a bowl — and because of that, it’s looking exceedingly likely that Wisconsin will cruise to the league championship game.
