College football: When is the Big Ten Championship Game?

Ohio State and Wisconsin could be on a collision course to meet in the Big Ten Championship game for the second year in a row, if the preseason AP Top 25 poll holds true. The Buckeyes are currently the highest-ranked Big Ten team at No. 4, followed by the No. 6-ranked Badgers.

Ohio State beat Wisconsin 27-21 in last season's Big Ten Championship but neither team made the College Football Playoff as the Big Ten was left out of the playoff for the first time.

The Big Ten, especially the East division, should be tightly contested with Penn State, Michigan and Michigan State also ranked in the AP Top 25.

The 2018 Big Ten Championship Game will be played on December 1, 2018, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
