College football: When is the Big Ten Championship Game?

Big Ten clash with big playoff repercussions

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 AP Top 25 poll holds true. The Buckeyes are currently the highest-ranked Big Ten team at No. 4, followed by No. 9 Penn State, No. 14 Michigan, No. 15 Wisconsin and No. 21 Michigan State.

The Buckeyes travel to the Nittany Lions for a major Week 5 showdown that could decide who wins the Big Ten East. Ohio State or Penn State has won the Big Ten Championship in three of the last four seasons.

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