Big Ten Tournament 2013 schedule and bracket: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin for the title

Ohio State aims to make up for last year's finals loss, but they have to go through Wisconsin to do it.


The Ohio St. Buckeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers split a pair of regular-season games, and on Sunday they'll settle the rubber match for the Big Ten Championship. It's Ohio State's seventh trip to the Big Ten final in eight years, and they've won the championship in three of those years. Wisconsin last took home the title in 2008.

Ohio State picked up the win in late January, 58-49, but Wisconsin got their revenge a few weeks later. The Badgers held the Buckeyes to 37.5-percent shooting in a 71-49 win, one of Ohio State's worst performances of the year. The Buckeyes have gone 7-0 since, and if Aaron Craft's semifinal performance against Michigan State is any indication, Wisconsin is in for a fight. Craft had 20 points with nine rebounds and four steals against the Spartans, a far cry from the four points he managed against the Badgers.

Television coverage will be provided by CBS, with the broadcast starting at 3:30 p.m. ET. For complete coverage of the final and the rest of the tournament, head over to SB Nation's Big Ten Championship hub. The complete bracket for the 2013 Big Ten Championship tournament can be found here.
