Well Big Ten fans, the day we have all been waiting for is almost here. After years of yearning for a conference title game, the college football world will finally watch the game that determines who the true king of the Big Ten really is.
With three weeks left in the season both the Michigan State Spartans and the Wisconsin Badgers determined their own fate. Win out, and you win a free trip to Pasadena.
Both teams, however, wouldn't have controlled their own fate if what could be the game of the season didn't happen just over a month ago. You may know it as the "rocket" game, the game you will never forget, or the game that caused you to punt your TV through a wall.
After Keith Nichol caught the game winning Hail Mary that capped the craziest win in Spartan Stadium, people were bracing themselves for a rematch. Now that weeks have passed and the teams have dominated, they are ready for a grudge match that is for all the marbles.
Will Wisconsin get revenge and head to their second Rose Bowl in a row? Can Michigan State book their flights to Pasadena for the first time since 1988? The only thing we know right now is that Saturday's winner will be clamping roses in their mouth and advancing to the 2012 Rose Bowl.
