[BIG TEN] Penn State clinched its 15th straight Big Ten regular-season championship after earning a 1-1 draw against Michigan on Sunday. The No. 4 Nittany Lions have  a 9-0-1 Big Ten record with one conference game remaining.

“I am so proud of this group,” said Nittany Lion coach Erica Walsh. “I am so proud of where they are today and where they came from.  There is a lot of emotion surrounding Senior Day. This is just a fantastic group of young women that are prepared to go out and succeed in their chosen field, but not yet because we still have a little more work to do.”

Michigan’s Nkem Ezurike scored a goal in the 60th minute to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead, but Nittany Lion senior Christine Nairn equalized on a penalty kick in the 86th minute.
Haley Kopmeyer had a great game between the pipes for Michigan, making 12 saves, including an incredible save on Nairn from 25 yards out early in the second half.

Penn State will be the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament, which will be held Oct. 31-Nov. 4 in Bloomington, Ind.

Big 12 Standings:
28 Penn State (9-0-1)
23 Michigan (7-1-2)
22 Ohio State (7-2-1)
16 Wisconsin (5-4-1)
16 Minnesota (5-4-1)
