Saturday 3:30 PM: Minnesota at #6 Wisconsin
Now winners of five straight, 9-2 Wisconsin continues to make believers with their pulverizing ways, but their road to the playoffs remains complicated by seven point losses to both Michigan and Ohio State. A rivalry game win over Minnesota gets the Badgers into the Big Ten championship game and a chance to potentially burnish their resume in front of the CFP committee. A number of things will need to go right in order for Wisconsin to get their shot in the playoffs, but no one will relish coming up against them if they do. First things first, they'll need to deal with a pesky Golden Gophers team who has racked up an 8-3 record by feasting on lesser opposition. They don't figure to be a threat at Camp Randall, but they've been close in every game this year.
