GRR: Big Ten
The Big Ten Conference has announced its All-Conference selections.
Ohio State loose forward Ben Richards and Indiana flyhalf Case Fleck have been named co-MVPs for the season, while Indiana center Will Chevalier was named Freshman of the Year. Richards played flanker and also hooker for Ohio State, and in fact received All-Conference honors at both positions (2nd team as hooker).
Well we were 15-1 in our picks last week (including two "pick 'em" games that were very close); only our pick of Colorado State vs Colorado was wrong.
The University of Michigan defeated Michigan State with a late surge to claim a top-four spot in the Big Ten Wednesday evening.
This game was a makeup of a September 27 game postponed by lightning. It needed to be played in order to round out the seedings for the Big Ten Finals Day this Saturday in Obetz, Ohio.
The Big Ten Conference has a little wrinkle in it, in fact two.
The first wrinkle is that it's not finished despite Finals Day being this coming weekend. Michigan vs Michigan State was postponed due to lightning, and will be played Wednesday, Nov. 6.
That game has an effect on what the final placement games will be Saturday, so will have to be played.
