On October 22nd of this year, the Wisconsin Badgers suffered a very painful 37-31 loss to the Michigan State Spartans on a Hail Mary pass. There were actually a number of other reasons why Badgers lost that Saturday night in Lansing, Michigan.
Revenge, they say, is a dish best served cold. Well, it won't even be that cold in Indianapolis, Indiana...where the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game will be played. The temperature is expected to be in the 50s on Saturday. Besides, the game will be played in the indoor Lucas Oil Stadium. The same site that will host Super Bowl XLVI in February.
The indoor environment favors the more talented squad. That bodes well for the Badgers. Revenge might not be served cold on Saturday night, but it will be served with authority if Wisconsin can do what they do best and also make sure they correct the mistakes they made in the last game against the Spartans.
Let us take a look at the keys of the game for the Badgers...
