They stay ahead of both Ill. and Ohio State by a half game and Indiana by a full game, heading into the final weekend.

I didn't get a chance to listen to or follow any of the games this weekend but I will take 2 out of 3at Michigan. Pretty tight between the top four.

Our RPI is at #18.

Minnesota........... 15 5 .750 33 14
Ohio State.......... 15 6 .714 36 14
Illinois............ 15 6 .714 32 16
Indiana............. 14 6 .700 25 24
Michigan State.... 12 8 .600 22 25

Need to win 2 of 3 at Penn St. and hope Illinois and Ohio St. don't sweep. Illinois travels to Purdue which will be difficult to sweep but Ohio State hosts Iowa so a sweep for the Buckeyes is favorable which would mean the rainout at indiana would be the main difference and they would finish 1/2 game ahead.

Friday and Saturdays games will be shown live on the Big Ten network.

Ohio State's got the easiest road by far. Hope the gophers catch good breaks next weekend.

Minnesota's starting pitcher was knocked out in the 2nd inning on Sunday...had to use a bullpen by committee which is not this team's strength.....hope Rosin is okay.
