Just like Wisconsin Football’s twitter account mentioned today, all of a sudden the Badgers find themselves right in the mix of things for the B1G West. Of Wisconsin’s three remaining games before the finale, two are at home and all three are against teams with a .500 record or worse. Minnesota will be on the road for three straight games before the finale at home Vs the Badgers. Minnesota can afford to lose one game and still remain in contention for the B1G West during the final week. The Badgers on the other hand must remain perfect as long as Minnesota does.
November 30th, 2019:
Badgers ranked #11 and the Gophers ranked #10 going into the final week of the season. Badgers were 9-2 and the Gophers were 10-1 on the season. In that game Jack Coan and Quintez Cephus put on an absolute clinic that game and Johnathan Taylor tacked on 76 yards and 2 TDs. This year it will take a heavy dose of the running game and a mistake free game from Graham Mertz to go into Minnesota and win.

We are not there yet:
It is not lost on us (nor the Wisconsin Badgers Football team I’m sure) that there are three important weeks between now and then. Badgers need to take care of business and put themselves in a position for week 13 to mean anything. However the Badgers reeling off four straight wins and putting themselves in a position to compete for a B1G Ten West Title is nothing to scoff at. Here’s to a fun month of football.
