The inaugural Big Ten Championship Game will feature a welcome rematch from the regular season as Michigan State and Wisconsin meet again in Indianapolis. The first showdown was perhaps the most memorable conference game of the season, as a 44-yard Hail Mary pass from Spartan quarterback Kirk Cousins bounced into the hands of his former backup Keith Nichol for the winning score as time expired. The loss crushed the Badgers’ hopes for a BCS National Championship Game appearance and set both teams on a collision course for a “double or nothing” showdown with the Big Ten’s Rose Bowl berth on the line.
