But which team will be standing on the shady side of the stadium that afternoon? Much more complicated. [Editor's Note: That's what I thought when I started writing. It actually turned out to be quite simple, but I'll let you read on to find out how I got there.]
Here's what we know. Ohio State and Michigan State will play in the Big Ten Championship game, also on Saturday. If Michigan State wins, the Spartans will travel west to play in the Granddaddy for the first time in twenty-six years. Simple.
But here's where things get complicated. [Editor's Note: Again, not really.] If the undefeated and #2 ranked Buckeyes win on Saturday, there are several different possibilities, and I'll do my best to lay them out in a way that makes sense. [Editor's Note: There is really only one realistic possibility.] Please stick with me, though. I'll wrap things up in the end in a way that makes sense. Hopefully. [Editor's Note: It makes perfect sense. You'll see.]
