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.

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

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
