College Football Schedule, Week 12: Nebraska At Michigan Headlines Saturday's Big Ten Action

The game most eyes will be focused on today is the one between Michigan and Nebraska, two top-20 ranked teams sitting just a game behind MSU in the Big Ten's Legends Division.

Each team is 8-2 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten with a fighting chance to catch MSU, who can clinch a spot in the inaugural Big Ten championship game with a win and a Cornhuskers' loss. While it's unlikely either will surpass MSU, there's still a lot at stake, particularly a better bowl game. The two teams last played in 2005 in the Alamo Bowl when Nebraska edged out the Wolverines, 32-28. 

In addition to Michigan/Nebraska, the Penn State vs. Ohio State game provides college football fans with an interesting match up. Both the PSU and OSU programs are in turmoil, the Nittany Lions finding their former coaches in the middle of a child molestation scandal and the Buckeyes recovering from the tats-for-cash scandal. When these teams played last year, both had the most winningest active coaches in college football and now, with Tressel and Paterno fired, both have two of the least winningest coaches in college football.

Ohio State is coming off of a heartbreaking 26-23 loss to Purdue after missing the game-winning extra point in regulation. Penn State lost 17-14 to Nebraska last week.
