Ahead of Big Ten title showdown, Wisconsin impressive in win

MINNEAPOLIS -- All season, Paul Chryst has implored his Wisconsin players to live in the moment, and they’ve listened. The biggest moment in recent program history is now upon them.

Wisconsin finally has the chance to move from the ranks of the very good and the remarkably consistent to the sport’s top level. The Badgers improved to 12-0 for the first time in team history after a 31-0 victory over Minnesota, retaining Paul Bunyan’s Axe for the 14th consecutive season. After completing Big Ten play unbeaten for the first time since 1912, when it played just five league games, Wisconsin has one more branch to chop down.
