INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – It’ll be defending champion vs. first-time participant in tonight’s Big Ten title game pitting Wisconsin against Nebraska. The Huskers lost to Texas in the 2009 Big 12 title game and then lost to Oklahoma the next year. This is their first time in the Big Ten championship game. Wisconsin won the inaugural title game last year.

Tickets are available for tonight’s Big Ten title game in Indianapolis, and they could remain that way right up to game time. Organizers say neither Wisconsin nor Nebraska has sold its entire allotment of 15,000 tickets. Plus, tickets available to the general public didn’t sell as quickly as last year.
