The Wisconsin Badgers are poised to beat the Penn State Nittany Lions to win the Leaders Division and advance to the inaugural Big Ten championship game held in Indianapolis.
The Badgers are coming off a come-from-behind victory over Illinois this past weekend in Champaign—a game that saw Montee Ball rush for 224 yards and three total touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving).
Just days after being rocked by a scandal, Penn State lost an emotional game to Nebraska on November 12. The Nittany Lions bounced back the very next week and took out Ohio State in Columbus.
This weekend's contest in Madison will prove to be the biggest game for both teams up to this point.
Here are five reasons why Wisconsin will upend Penn State and represent the Leaders Division in the Big Ten championship game.
