Any Other Result


The line for this game is Wisconsin by 28 points.

Wisconsin controls its own destiny for a spot in the Big Ten championship game and a possible College Football Playoff berth, needing only to get through its last two regular-season games unscathed. The sixth-ranked Badgers will get their final road test of the regular season when they visit last-place Purdue on Saturday.

Of the four Big Ten teams in the top eight of the CFP rankings, Wisconsin in the only one in the West Division and as such already has a clear path to the Big Ten title game if it can make it past Purdue and Minnesota. The Badgers survived three straight tight games before finally putting their best offensive conference game together behind 363 rushing yards against Illinois. Corey Clement led the way with 123 yards and three touchdowns and went over 100 for the fourth time in the last five games.

The Boilermakers were only down 14-10 at halftime last week before surrendering 31 points after the break in another blowout loss which dropped the team to 119th out of 128 FBS teams in scoring defense (38.4 points). Purdue surrenders an average of 248.8 yards on the ground after allowing Northwestern to rumble for 253 last week, putting more pressure on quarterback David Blough and the offense. Blough owns 16 interceptions this season and was picked off three times last week before being replaced by freshman Elijah Sindelar, who went 8-of-15 for 80 yards and an interception.

The last time Purdue won more than one Big Ten game in a season was 2012, when a three-game winning streak to end the campaign left it at 3-5.

Badgers RB Dare Ogunbowale ran for 103 yards on seven carries last week and is averaging 11.2 yards per carry in the last three contests.

Wisconsin took the last 10 in the series, including a 24-7 triumph last season.
