How it will play out...

The three unranked teams, Ohio State, Rutgers and Michigan, have already gone 1-1 vs each other. They will most likely lose out to the ranked Big Ten teams remaining on each of their respective schedules, and finish in a three way tie for fifth/last place in the Big Ten at 1-5. None of the three will qualify for the Big Ten Tournament.

#25 Johns Hopkins has already gone 0-3 vs the three title contenders (Maryland, Northwestern and Penn St) with all but Maryland by a razor thin margin. They will most likely sweep out the remainder of the unranked Big Ten teams on their schedule in blowout fashion, and lock up the four seed in the Big  Ten Tournament at 3-3.

Title Contenders:
#3 Maryland - still has to play Northwestern and Penn State. The Northwestern game "should" be for the Title.
#7 Northwestern - already beat Penn St, will play Maryland for the Big Ten Regular Season Title.
#17 Penn State - If Maryland beats Northwestern, then Penn State can beat Maryland, which would force a three way tie for first place whereby all three teams went 1-1 against each other and finished 5-1.
Maryland knocked off Penn St.
So you can pencil in the Nittany Lionesses as the three seed in the Big Ten Tourney, having lost to both Maryland and Northwestern.
Speaking of Maryland and Northwestern, they will square off for the Regular Season Big Ten Title/one seed on thursday, with the loser of that game nabbing the two seed.

In spite of jumping out to a 3-0 start, OSU was blown out by Hopkins. The OSU season is officially over.

OSU's loss also eliminates Michigan from the Big Ten Tourney, as their only hope was a tie that included OSU.

So the Hopkins @ Rutgers game will officially be for the four seed with Hopkins as a heavy favorite.



Although they may have had worse overall records, I would argue that this was the worst season in Buckeye history for the following reasons.
1. They lost to Mich again. last years loss to the Wolverines was the first in school history, and now it's two in a row.
2. They lost to Cincinnati for the first time in school history. Bad. The Bearcats are currently 0-7 in the Big East.
3. Failure to qualify for the Conference Tourney. Although they did steal a regular season win unlike last year.
4. Loss of oldest tradition; a non-Conference game vs Notre Dame. The two schools had played a game every year up until this one.

Ohio State wins the Big Ten Regular Season Title.



http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/sports/m-tennis/recaps/042018aaa.html

for the 13th-straight season, the Ohio State men’s tennis team is on top of the heap in the Big Ten as the Buckeyes clinched at least a share of the title with a 5-2 victory Friday afternoon at No. 46 Indiana.
The win keeps the Buckeyes undefeated in the conference at 10-0 and they are now 25-2 overall on the season. Ohio State is now just the sixth program in any sport in Big Ten history to win 13-straight league crowns.

Week 4 of 5

The Conference really got turned on its head this week.

Hopkins won @ Michigan 10-9

Rutgers beat Penn St 11-8

Ohio St won @ Maryland 12-10

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Week, Week 5 of 5

Saturday

Noon - #3Maryland @ #7Johns Hopkins - for the Big Ten Regular Season Title

1:00 - #9Rutgers @ #19Ohio State

2:00 - Michigan @ #14Penn State

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Breaking Down the Big Ten Tournament

What we know...

Michigan is out. @Penn State is their final game.

The Maryland-Hopkins winner will get the one seed.

The loser of that game will make the tourney, but they could wind up in a three way tie with Penn St and the OSU-Rutgers winner.

OSU needs to win to get in. A loss, and their season is over.

Rutgers can still get in with a loss, but they'd need Michigan to beat Penn St.

Penn St can still get in with a loss, but they'd need Rutgers to beat Ohio St.
