While Maryland is running away with first place in the Big Ten regular season standings, the battle for second place has become a fierce one ahead of the conference tournament.

The picture should clear up this weekend though, as SBI N0. 8 Indiana travels to Madison to take on Wisconsin. Both teams are tied on points with Michigan State for second place in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers have just one loss on the season, but the Badgers have been a handful for all comers this season and look primed to break into the Top 25 with a victory on Friday.

A big ACC showdown takes place in South Carolina, where SBI No. 12 Clemson plays host to No. 7 Syracuse. Both are trying to close the gap on current ACC Atlantic leaders Wake Forest and Louisville.

Out West, Stanford heads south to take on arch-rival UCLA in a rematch of Stanford’s 3-0 victory in Palo Alto just a week ago. The Cardinal are running away with the Pac-12 at the halfway point of the conference schedule, but the Bruins could drag Stanford closer to the trailing back with a victory at home.
