Penn State’s Leaders Division clinching scenarios

With Saturday’s loss Penn State maintains control of their fate in the Big Ten Leaders Division. With two games to play the Nittany Lions have a one game edge in the loss column over Wisconsin, and a two game lead over Ohio State. A win next week by Penn State would eliminate Ohio State from the Big Ten championship game picture and set up a possible must-win situation in the regular season finale at Wisconsin.

Here is an updated look at Penn State’s Leaders Division clinching scenarios:

  • Penn State clinches with two wins
  • Penn State clinches with one win and one Wisconsin loss

To break it down another way:

  • If Penn State loses to Ohio State and Wisconsin, Wisconsin wins
  • If Penn State beats Ohio State and loses to Wisconsin, Wisconsin wins
  • If Penn State loses to Ohio State and beats Wisconsin, Penn State wins
  • If Penn State beats Ohio State and Wisconsin loses to Illinois, Penn State wins
