For seeding IA, if we lose to IA in the last game it probably doesn't matter much...but with the head to head tiebreaker records for tied teams with MSU in the mix we start off 0-2 before you throw other teams in the mix...if we beat IA then they are a 1-1 wash. If we are going to be tied with teams for seeding rooting for MI/RU/PU where we are 2-0 would help the most, then 1-0 records like WIS & PSU,for our B10 reg season chances and seeding who are you hoping wins tonight given what they have left. MSU or Iowa?
But let's just win out, that puts us ahead of IA & the loser of PSU / MSU &worst case locks us into a tiebreaker for 2-4 with WIS & winner of PSU/MSU, with a likely 2 seed if it is PSU & 4 seed if it is MSU. But Wisconsin still needs to win in Ann Arbor to stay in that tie-breaker & MSU would still needs to win at MD if they beat PSU...so an MSU loss should get us the 2 seed. A Wisconsin loss would would knock it to a 2 way tie for 2nd and a 2/3 seed... so back to just win out and this all likely just takes care of itself.
