Bye week comes at good time for banged-up Badgers

Posted:

 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's ground game is suddenly stuck and quarterback Joel Stave is nursing a bad shoulder.

   But there's one bright spot for the Badgers as they head into the bye week: They still have a clear path to the Big Ten title game.

   Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten) trails Ohio State and Penn State in the Leaders Division after a 16-13 overtime loss to Michigan State on Saturday. But neither the Buckeyes nor the Nittany Lions are eligible for the postseason, and the Badgers have a two-game lead on Indiana.

   The Badgers play at Indiana on Nov. 10, then finish the season with games against Ohio State and Penn State. Indiana plays at Iowa next weekend, then finishes with home games against Penn State and in-state rival Purdue.
