In a Week 12 across college football that was low on ranked-on-ranked matchups, the Big Ten made sure to keep things interesting.
Whether it was No. 3 Michigan’s scare in the Big House against Illinois, No. 2 Ohio State’s struggle with Maryland in College Park or Indiana’s double overtime victory against Michigan State and their $95 million coach Mel Tucker, there was a little something for every college football connoisseur.
Amidst all the craziness in the Big Ten on Saturday also came a record that hadn’t been set in more than 50 years.
