1st 1G title game without Badgers has lot on line for MSU & OSU

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Big Ten championship game already looks like a classic contest.

No. 2 Ohio State comes to Indianapolis with its trendy, up-tempo offense and a powerful old-style ground game that has been virtually unstoppable.

No. 10 Michigan State (11-1) counters with its typically stout defense, which doesn't allow many opposing offenses to get in sync.

Yes, it's time to settle in for Saturday night.

The stakes couldn't be higher: To the winner goes an all-expenses paid bowl trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl.

And if the Buckeyes (12-0) extend their school record winning streak, the nation's longest, to 25, the reward may be even greater -- what is likely to be their fourth appearance in the BCS title game, their first with two-time national champion coach Urban Meyer.
