Nebraska and Michigan battle to keep pace with Michigan State in the Legends Division.

Michigan State, which currently sits atop the Big Ten's Legends Division with a 5-1 conference record, controls their own destiny as they look to reach the league's inaugural title game in Indianapolis. But nipping at their heels are Nebraska and Michigan, which will both enter Saturday with 4-2 records in conference play. The Cornhuskers and Wolverines will take each other on in what is the Big Ten's marquee match up in Week 12, and the Wolverines, thanks to a head-to-head loss to the Spartans, will be eliminated from the division race with a loss.

In the Leaders Division, Penn State will look to head into its de facto division championship game vs. Wisconsin in the week's final season with some positive momentum, which they can achieve with a victory over Ohio State. Here is the full slate of Big Ten games in Week 12:

Iowa Hawkeyes at Purdue Boilermakers (12 p.m. ET, BTN)

Wisconsin Badgers at Illinois Fighting Illini (12 p.m. ET, ESPN2)

Nebraska Cornhuskers at Michigan Wolverines (12 p.m. ET, ESPN)
