This year's Big Ten Championship game features two teams that are undefeated in conference play, so someone will walk away as a loser in B1G play for the first time in 2013.
It was only natural that these two teams would dot the all-conference and individual awards handed out on Monday. The two teams combined for 10 1st team all-conference players on the coaches list and 11 on the media's list.
Saturday will feature the best-of-the-best going up against each other in what has become the most hyped and talked about Big Ten Championship game in its young history.
Tickets are sold out, nearly every suite has been sold and over 550 media credentials have been issued for this event. Oh, and ESPN's College GameDay will be in Indianapolis, too.
With all the hype and all the star-quality players on the field on Saturday, we've somehow managed to narrow the game down to the five biggest matchups of the game.
So let's get to the matchups that could be the difference between winning and losing the Stagg Trophy.
