Shorter Season Means UW-Northwestern Game Is Even More Important

Saturday afternoon’s game between Wisconsin and Northwestern is basically a battle for a berth in the Big Ten Championship game.

Both teams will be heavily-favored in the rest of their games in the regular season. This one looks and feels a lot like the game between the same two teams at Ryan Field two years ago. The Wildcats won that one 31-17. Coach Pat Fitzgerald’s team is off to its best start in 24 years and is undefeated through four games. E-S-P-N’s computerized Playoff Predictor gives the Badgers a 17-percent chance of winning the national championship – and a win against Northwestern keeps them on that track.
