Hoosiers Still Holding on to Bowl Hopes

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Wisconsin is used to playing in big games.

Indiana is about to get a crash course in learning how to handle the pressure.

After winning two straight Big Ten games, the Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten) are suddenly preparing for their biggest game in five years. With a win Saturday, Indiana would be just two wins away from playing in Indianapolis for the Big Ten crown.

The stakes are also high for Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2). A victory in Bloomington clinches a second straight spot in the league title game.

Things haven't gone according to plan for the Badgers. They're coming off a bye week following a rare home loss in which they rushed for just 19 yards, and they must decide who will replace the injured Joel Stave at quarterback.
