Michigan Wins Big Ten Title

Michigan swept a doubleheader from Iowa today to win the Big Ten regular season championship. The Wolverines (22-9, 37-18) won the right to host the Big Ten Tournament after Northwestern dropped the second game of its doubleheader with Purdue this afternoon.

Ohio State split their twinbill with Penn State today. Ohio State clinched third place with the single victory.

Minnesota swept Indiana moving the Gophers into the tournament field.

Purdue's game two win over NU secured a Big Ten tournament spot for the Boilermakers.

Michigan State and Illinois split their Saturday doubleheader. The Illini are one game ahead of PSU for the final post-season spot.

I'll have more on these games either later tonight or tomorrow. I attended game one of the Iowa at Michigan game, so I'll share my thoughts on that game in particular. Hopefully, I'll post a link to some photos as well.
