The White Sox and Tigers aren't the only teams from Illinois and Michigan in a tight race. Northwestern and Michigan are also in a tight race for the Big Ten regular season championship. Unfortunatley for the 'Cats today, they travelled down to West Lafayette and lost 11-3 to Purdue. Meanwhile, in Ann Arbor, Michigan defeated Iowa 2-1 and now has a 1 game lead in the Big Ten. The Wildcats and Wolverines have three games each remaining this weekend against their respective opponents. Should the teams finish tied atop the standings, Northwestern would win per a better head-to-head record. The winner of the Big Ten regular season will host the Big Ten Tournament next weekend.
