Wisconsin clinches spot in Big Ten championship

by Charlie Armitz

Wisconsin clinched a spot in the Big Ten championship game with its 62-14 win over Indiana on Saturday.

The Badgers (4-2 Big Ten) will represent the conference’s Leaders Division for the second-straight season. They will play the representative from the Legends Division — either Nebraska or Michigan — in the Dec. 1 title game.

The Huskers and Wolverines are both 5-1 in the Big Ten with two games left. Nebraska holds the tiebreaker against Michigan and will advance to the championship game if both teams finish with the same conference record.

The Gophers play at Nebraska next Saturday.
