Heartland up for grabs this weekend

MADISON, Wis. — There’s a chance Wisconsin could still win the Big Ten West, but two things need to happen.

First, Illinois would need to lose two of its next three games. Second, the Badgers would have to win out. The latter is exactly what this group is focusing on.

UW’s next three games are big ones and not just because they’re the next on the schedule. The Badgers close out the season with three-straight trophy games starting with a trip to Iowa City for the Battle for the Bull.

Wisconsin kicks off with Iowa on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
