Badgers predictions: Game 12 vs. Penn State

And then there was one. Wisconsin plays its final regular-season game against Penn State at Camp Randall Stadium. A win puts the Badgers in pretty decent shape to be eligible as an at-large team for a BCS bowl game. Penn State isn't the team it was last year - and neither is Wisconsin, for that matter.
