Badgers Look to Avenge a Loss

Coaches Bret Bielema and Mark Dantonio pose with the trophy before the game.

This coming Saturday, December 1st, at 7:17 PM, Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis will be the loudest place in Indiana. The Leaders division champion, Wisconsin Badgers, face the Legends division champion Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2012 Big Ten football championship. Last year, the Badgers won the championship against Michigan State after a last second roughing the punter call against the Spartans gave the Badgers a win. This will be the third meeting between the Huskers and Badgers since Nebraska joined the Big Ten conference a year ago. Last year in Madison, the Badgers gave the Cornhuskers a warm welcome to the conference with a 48 to 17 blowout in the Cornhusker’s first Big Ten game.  Earlier this year, in Lincoln, the Badgers lost 30 to 27 in a heartbreaker which featured the Badgers up 27 to 10 at one point. With the series tied 1-1 between them and a third straight trip to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on the line, the Badgers hope to prove themselves best in the conference. A win would also provide much needed momentum heading in to the Rose Bowl game, which they have now lost two years in a row. On the flip side, if the Cornhuskers won the championship game, it would solidify them as a Big Ten football powerhouse, after being in the conference for only two seasons now. This game is shaping up to be one for the record books!  By Ryan Wall (for CAMM)
