Badgers Ready For Stretch Run

 West Lafayette, Indiana (WQOW) — The Badgers kept their Big Ten West Division title hopes alive Saturday with a 34-16 win at Purdue.

Wisconsin is 4-1 in conference, and part of a three-way tie for first in the division with Minnesota and Nebraska..  Iowa is one game back at 3-2.
The Badgers will finish the season by playing those three teams.

“As soon as the game hit 0:00 we were like alright we got a big one,” says Wisconsin junior running back Melvin Gordon, “that’s what we were all telling each other, we got to get ready now.”

“These next three games are going to tell a lot about what this team is and how far we’ve come together,” says Wisconsin senior linebacker Marcus Trotter, “so we’re really excited.”

“We’re in the drivers seat,” says Badgers sophomore linebacker Vince Biegel, “and we’re still in control of our destiny so we’re looking for those last three games and November is going to be a month to remember that’s for sure.”

You can watch Wisconsin’s home game with Nebraska on WQOW 18, Saturday.  Kickoff is set for 2:30 P.M.
