Crystal Ball Run:
It's safe to say no one saw this one coming, no seriously, if you did you can put your hand down now because you are simply lying or have the ultimate Cardinal and White glasses on. Either way there is no way around this one, Wisconsin simply curb stomped their way into the record books in a 70-31 route of Nebraska. It's safe to say that not many can say the Badgers didn't earn their way anymore with their performance tonight.
The records start with Wisconsin becoming the first team not named Michigan or Ohio State to make three straight Rose Bowl appearances as they will take on Stanford on January 1st in Pasadena. Wisconsin's 70 points were the most ever by any team in a conference championship game ever. Also, in dominating the Huskers the Badgers racked up 640 yards of total offense, 539 of which came via the rushing attack. The later of which was just 4th best all-time in school history.
It was truly a three headed monster for the Badgers as Big Ten run...

INDIANAPOLIS Melvin Gordon couldn't help but hear the unrest from Wisconsin football fans displeased with his lack of touches this season. If he was really being honest with himself, he knew a running back with his talent was capable of so much more than he'd been given the opportunity to show.
But he also knew running backs at Wisconsin don't appear on campus and instantly...
Ummmmm.... Yea, about that close game and about Nebraska dominating the Badgers. We didn't mean any of that, we swear.

O.k, now that we got that out of the way we aren't going to bore you with the inner workings of Wisconsin's Reauchambeauing (sp) of the Huskers. Instead we'll leave with the records...
INDIANAPOLIS Sometimes, you show up to a stadium or turn on the television with absolutely no idea how a game will play out. Pundits say it should be close, but who really knows until they take the field?
That's the beauty of sports.
Wisconsin entered Saturday's Big Ten championship against Nebraska as a slight underdog and unloaded on the Cornhuskers with an offensive...
Earlier in the day we looked at the anatomy of a Nebraska win, now we must look at how Wisconsin can win and get to their third straight Rose Bowl.
How Wisconsin Wins on Saturday?
1) Contain T-Mart: Taylor Martinez had a great game in the September 29th meeting between these two teams; he passed for 181 yards and 2 touchdowns and also ran 13 times for 107 yards and...
Montee Ball ran for 202 yards and three touchdowns and the Badgers scored seven touchdowns on their first nine possessions, blowing out No. 14 Nebraska 70-31 to win their third straight, and most improbable, Big Ten title on Saturday night.
Something you may have noticed is that I haven't posted any updates on Carolina's NCAA prospects in a couple weeks. The reason for this is because there are usually only two games per weekend in the college rankings and with only five players to track, there isn't much to say about them unless they had a big performance. This is especially true if you don't have a...

I don't know about you, but for myself the past two Rose Bowl seasons have been amazing journeys full of ups and downs, what could've beens and all that comes with it. But, this one, this 3rd one in a row, well it just smells and tastes that much sweeter. No doubt the Badgers had to overcome certain things in 2010 and 2011 to get to the championship...
The Badgers went back to the formula that has wont them so many games under Bo Ryan, mainly playing solid defense and making smart plays on the offensive end as they finished off a previously undefeated Cal early in an 81-56 victory.
On Sunday the Badgers (5-3) also added a touch of domination down low and a flash of just how good Sam Dekker can be to their recipe for success...
Often the third tailback in Wisconsin's deep arsenal, redshirt freshman Melvin Gordon took his 56 yards for a touchdown and never slowed down. Finishing with career and team-high 216 yards on only nine carries, Gordon's first-half spark ignited the offense to another conference championship.
