    September 26, 2016

    Seven games are on the Week 12 Big Ten football schedule and it all begins with a noon kickoff in Iowa City between No. 5 Iowa and Purdue. The Hawkeyes are looking to stay undefeated and in line for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Iowa will face a Boilermakers squad that has struggled this season with a 2-8 record.

    Also at noon, No. 14 Michigan will take its 8-2 record into Happy Valley to battle the Penn State Nittany Lions. The Wolverines have been a defensive force in Coach Jim Harbaugh’s first season in Ann Arbor and will face a Penn State offense that has struggled to put points on the board.

    At 3:30 p.m. ET, No. 25 Wisconsin will look to improve to 9-2 when the Badgers host the No. 18 Northwestern Wildcats. The Badgers two losses have come to No. 2 Alabama and No. 5 Iowa. The Wildcats beat Penn State last week on a last-second field goal to improve to 8-2.

    A major battle in Columbus takes place at 3:30 p.m. ET as well, as No. 3 Ohio State tries to stay unbeaten when No. 13 Michigan State comes to town. The Buckeyes have won 23 straight games dating back to last year.
