MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Its spot in the Big Ten title game already assured, Wisconsin now gets a chance to prove it deserves it.

Knocking off No. 6 Ohio State (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) on Saturday would go a long way toward erasing that asterisk hanging over the Badgers these days. Wisconsin actually trails the Buckeyes by two games in the Leaders Division, but it's the Badgers (7-3, 4-2) who are on their way to Indianapolis for a second straight year because Ohio State is ineligible for the postseason.

A win Saturday would give the Buckeyes the outright title in the division.
