The Big Ten basketball season is almost at the halfway point and there has been quite a shake up near the conference standings over this past week. Sure, Michigan State and Michigan are at the top still, but Purdue has vaulted itself from unranked to No. 17 in the country and No. 3 in the Big Ten.

A week can change things quite a lot in such a competitive conference this time of year, and so, who could be the next team to pull off a hot streak and become the third-best team? We saw Maryland do it and now Purdue – could Minnesota be next?

Kevin and Troy break down this past week’s action while looking at the week ahead. And, if Penn State wanted to pull off the upset of the year in the week ahead and beat Purdue, next week’s show could wind up being quite a long one.
