The Wisconsin Badgers defeated the Indiana Hoosiers 59-7 last season. The year before that? 83-20.
That's a lot of points.

Wisconsin isn't the same team it was over the past two seasons, and Indiana has shown improvement, standing only a game behind the Badgers in the Leaders Division. In other words, this game is more important than many realize.
