IOWA CITY, Iowa – Melvin Gordon's record-setting effort against Nebraska pushed Wisconsin one step closer to another Big Ten title.
A repeat performance could send the 14th-ranked Badgers back to Indianapolis for the championship game — and Gordon to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.
Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten, No. 16 CFP) still has a lot to play for on Saturday when it faces Iowa (7-3, 4-2) in its road finale, even if a spot in the playoffs is likely out of reach.
A Badgers win, coupled with a Nebraska win over Minnesota, will put them in the league title game for the third time in four years.
