Forget Playoffs. Wisconsin, Penn State All About Big Ten Title Game
Dec 04 2016 by Marjorie Miles
From there, the Sooners or Cowboys would need upsets in the ACC and Pac-12 and then probably hope for an ugly Big Ten game that make a two-loss Big 12 champion better looking than a two-loss Big Ten victor.
Penn State came back strong following halftime, closing Wisconsin's lead. MI or the victor of the Big Ten championship game between No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 7 Penn State?
Wisconsin, which gained 241 rushing yards, pushed back with a 10-play, 51-yard drive in the final minutes of the game, but Penn State stopped Clement on a fourth-and-1 to thwart any final attempt to tie the game. No team would be more pissed off about that than Penn State, who actually beat Ohio State. Wisconsin is -1.5 over Penn State in this game. It has two losses, but if it wins the Big 12 title shouldn't it be considered? Penn State's conference champion in particular, which coach James Franklin said "has to carry weight" earlier in the week. Wisconsin has only allowed over 20 points all year one time and that was to Ohio State in a game that went to overtime.
While the linebackers lead the Badgers dominant defense, Wisconsin's ground game leads their offense.
That may sound good in the confines of a locker room or in a stadium decked out in cardinal and blue.
At the very least, tonight's game in Indianapolis will determine which team goes to the Rose Bowl. Top-10 wins over Michigan, Wisconsin and Oklahoma - the latter two on the road - should ensure Columbus sleeps soundly this weekend. "They've done a good job of that".
"Don't think I can emphasize enough the small margin of separation that the Selection Committee sees between those two teams". "I know this is a big deal for us and our players". In those two teams, the Nittany Lions were outscored by 42 points.
It got here by winning eight consecutive since a 39-point drubbing at the hands of MI in late September. Junior cornerback Grant Haley made the biggest tackle of the season, wrapping up Badgers running back Corey Clement short of the line to gain on a 4th-and-one from inside Penn State territory with under 90 seconds remaining.

Mr Price has characterised Obamacare as "doing real harm to American families" and has co-sponsored legislation to replace it. Sen. "Nominating Congressman Price to be the HHS secretary is akin to asking the fox to guard the hen house", Schumer said.
He'd just rather let the conference title make the case for him. If that is the case, there is an argument for the Big Ten champion against MI and Ohio State.
The College Football Playoff Foundation partnered with the Big Ten Conference and Extra Yard for Teachers to honor the teachers and award $50,000 in grants to assist with educational projects.
"Penn State's going to be significantly better than IL". Hornibrook was listed as questionable with a head injury.
The next offensive series led to one of Wisconsin's key explosive plays.
In an era where gaudy offensive numbers and high-scoring games have become the norm, these teams are throwbacks - relying heavily on the run and stout defenses.
The Badgers have intercepted 21 passes, tops in the nation. During one stretch - from the end of the second quarter to the start of the fourth - McSorley completed nine straight passes for a total of 241 yards and three touchdowns.
Fan Fest was held inside the Indiana Convention Center. The Badgers have won eight straight regular-season games against Purdue and IN and won two of the first three title games IN Indy. Penn State won't make it, either.
