COVID-19 deprived college basketball fans of a dream matchup earlier this season when a game between the No. 1 ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs and No. 2 ranked Baylor Bears was canceled. While those two teams will likely not meet this year unless it is in the national championship game, today’s colossal Big Ten matchup provides a great alternative. In what is the best regular-season game played to date, the No. 3 ranked Michigan Wolverines travel to the No. 4 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes.

The two teams have split their previous 12 meetings, and this matchup of two potential No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament should not disappoint.
