Something has to give with a combined conference record of 23-1 here.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

This is the biggest home game since last year’s title clincher against Indiana. It is the biggest home game against Ohio State since E’Twaun Moore brought the house down with his 38 special in 2011. Vince Edwards vs. Keita Bates-Diop will be fascinating.

Let’s go take a big step forwards a 24th Big Ten title.
