“Big game” looms Saturday in Evanston


MADISON, Wis – In order to get where they want to go, the Badgers have to get past an undefeated Wildcat team at place where it’s never easy to win.

Ryan Field has become somewhat of a house of horrors for Wisconsin. In 5 of their last 6 trips to Evanston, UW has lost. And with Northwestern leading the West division, a win on Saturday would put Paul Chryst’s squad in the drivers seat for another trip to the Big Ten Championships game.

So when he says “it’s a big game”, Coach Chryst isn’t using coach speak.
