After a 1-0 loss to Michigan State Friday, the Ohio State women’s soccer team will not win the program’s first regular season Big Ten championship. The Buckeyes entered the game hoping to clinch a share of the conference title with a victory, but their loss, coupled with Penn State’s 2-0 win Sunday, leaves them second in the league at season’s end. The Nittany Lions earned their 12th consecutive conference title and an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament. The Buckeyes, now 14-3-2 overall, should still receive an at-large bid, but might have lost any chance to play a home game to begin the tournament. The official brackets will be released during the NCAA Women’s Soccer Selection Show, which airs today at 8 p.m. on ESPNEWS.
