Bowl projections: Irish vs. Huskers in Rose Bowl

This much we know: Wisconsin will play either Nebraska or Michigan in the Big Ten title game. All three are coming off wins and figure to land nice bowl slots, regardless of what the matchup ends up being in Indianapolis. A big winner on Saturday was Minnesota, which became bowl eligible for the first time since 2009 with a win at Illinois. The other big winner over the weekend was Purdue. The Boilermakers’ 27-24 win at Iowa was victory No. 4 and it broke a five-game losing skid. It also fuels the chances for Purdue to get to a bowl

Dienhart: Badgers dash Hoosiers dreams in rout

That “pop” you just heard was Indiana’s Rose Bowl dreams. Oh, it was a LONG shot. We all knew it. But it was fun while it lasted, as the Hoosiers came into today controlling their own destiny in a Leaders Division title chase that would land them in the Big Ten title game with a chance to advance to Pasadena. That caused America—or at least the Midwest—to rub its eyes in disbelief. But it was true. Well, Wisconsin didn’t just crush those dreams—it smashed them to smithereens in a 62-14 victory that clinched a second consecutive spot in the Big

Wisconsin runs all over Indiana, 62-14

Montee Ball ran for 198 yards and three touchdowns, James White scored on runs of 69 and 50 yards, and Wisconsin set a school rushing record Saturday with 564 yards in a 62-14 rout at Indiana. The Badgers (7-3, 4-2) will now have a chance to claim their third straight Big Ten crown after clinching a spot in the league’s title game. Ball also moved past 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams and into second place on the FBS career list. He has 77 career TDs, trailing only Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) who had 78.

Wisconsin ran for 173 yards in the quarter, and the Badgers now lead 41-7. Wisconsin, which has scored 24 straight points, expanded its lead to 31-7 thanks to a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended when Montee Ball pounded in a one-yard touchdown run.

Wisconsin added to its advantage when Kyle French made a 37-yard field goal, the last of a seven-play, 50-yard drive to give the Badgers the lead,

2nd quarter recap: Wisconsin 24, Indiana 7

Thanks to a mean rushing attack, Wisconsin leads Indiana, 24-7, after the second quarter. The Badgers rushed for 88 yards in the quarter, and both Montee Ball (106 yards) and James White (103) have eclipsed the 100-yard plateau. Meanwhile, the Badgers held Indiana to just 14 rushing yards in the quarter. Wisconsin opened up the lead, 17-0, after marching down the field for a seven-play, 60-yard drive that ended when Kyle French kicked a 24-yard field goal. The Hoosiers got on the board when Cameron Coffman found Ted Bolser on a six-yard touchdown pass to cap a 69-yard drive. The

The Badgers got on the scoreboard first, rattling off an eight-play, 69-yard drive that ended in a score when Montee Ball ran 10 yards to paydirt. The score tied Ball with Ricky Williams on the career TD list. The Badgers added to their advantage when Curt Phillips threw a two-yard touchdown pass to Sam Arneson, putting a bow on an eight-play, 69-yard drive to give
