The Big Ten could be the best league in the nation. It might also be the most fun to watch.

A week of thrilling upsets and stunning finishes has put the national focus back onto the Big Ten ahead of what should be a fascinating stretch run.

The Big Ten has three top 10 teams, five in the Top 25 and eight squads with at least 15 wins. All of that has led to a litany of high-profile matchups and a season as entertaining as any in recent memory.

The Big Ten Network says January was its highest-rated month ever in prime time, a bump the network credited largely to high-profile basketball games.
