Ohio State Buckeyes (25-1) @ Purdue Boilermakers (21-5)

Time: 1:00 pm EST

Odds: Available at Sportsbook.com

Preview: The top two teams in the Big Ten will get together on Sunday afternoon for a huge tilt. The Ohio State Buckeyes come into the game with a 25-1 record and 12-1 in conference play. They currently lead the conference by 2 games over Purdue and 3 over the Wisconsin Badgers.

Ohio State lost their lone game of the season on February 12th in Madison. They bounced back with a win over Michigan State on Tuesday night. Jared Sullinger leads the Buckeyes with 17.8 points per game and 10 rebounds per game. Sullinger is in line for the freshman of the year, and possibly for the national player of the year. Ohio State has regular season games remaining with Illinois and Indiana, at Penn State and then at home with Wisconsin.

The Boilermakers, if they want a chance to win the conference will have to win yet another home game. Last week, after beating Illinois on the road, Purdue came away with a home win over Wisconsin.

The Boilermakers are led by Ja’Juan Johnson and his 20.7 points per game. Purdue ranks 19th in the country, averaging 16.2 assists per game. The last time these two teams played was on January 25th when the Buckeyes blasted the Boilermakers 87-64.

Our prediction for this game: Purdue keeps it rolling and makes the Big Ten even more interesting. Purdue wins 70-69.
