Michigan State won the first meeting over their in state rivals Michigan yesterday.  The next match up on March 9th is going to play a big part in who wins the Big Ten Championship. 

According to M-Live, the 2nd meeting between the two Big Ten rivals will be in East Lansing and will be played at 8 p.m. on March 9th.

The prime time match up will be on ESPN.   This game will be the final regular season game for both teams.

The Spartans have games remaining at Indiana and home against Nebraska before the game against the Wolverines.   Michigan host Nebraska and travels to Maryland before they finish in East Lansing.

Purdue can also be in on the Big Ten title as they are currently a half game behind the Spartans.   They split the season series against Michigan State.

A lot can happen over the next couple weeks but this final game between the two teams should be another one to watch.
