COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - No. 14 Ohio State (21-7, 11-5 Big Ten) travels to play second-ranked Indiana (25-4, 13-3) on Tuesday night as the Big Ten's wacky regular-season starts to wind down.
The Hoosiers already have captured a share of the conference title. To win it outright for the first time since 1993, they need to beat the Buckeyes or win at No. 7 Michigan on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Ohio State, Michigan, 22nd-ranked Wisconsin and No. 10 Michigan State still have a shot at getting a piece of the regular season championship.
Just a year ago the Big Ten leader lost at home in the final week, opening the door to a three-way tie. The Ohio State-Indiana game could settle things or leave the title in doubt.
The field has been set for the 2013 Indianapolis 500. Ed Carpenter won the pole and will be joined by rookie Carlos Munoz and Marco Andretti on the front row. Row three features defending IndyCar champ Ryna Hunter-Reay, Helio Castroneves and James Hinchcliffe. (NBC Sports)
