Open Thread: "Can both teams lose the same game?" Edition

Purdue at Ohio State.  6:30 p.m.  Big Ten Network.

This is kind of a big one, so we'll do a special edition game thread for a non-MSU game.  Regardless of the outcome, MSU will continue to technically control its own destiny for winning the league outright.  Logic would say we should pull for Ohio State, though, since we get the Buckeyes at home but have to play Purdue on the road.  An Ohio State win tonight would mean that an MSU win on Sunday would set things up to win at least a share of the conference title (barring Penn State or Michigan knocking us off at the Breslin Center).

Mr. Brennan has a solid preview of the game up, along with links to pregame material from the Purdue and Ohio State blogospheres.  The BTN's Brent Yarina, meanwhile, interviewed the folks from Boiled Sports and Eleven Warriors about their expectations going into the game (spoiler: they both think their boys are going to win).

Discuss away.
