MADISON, Wis. -

Yes, the Badgers are stumbling into the Big Ten title game after a 21-14 overtime loss to No. 4 Ohio State on Saturday. Currently third in the Leaders Division, they've basically been gifted a shot at playing for the Rose Bowl because the Buckeyes and Penn State, the two teams ahead of them, are ineligible for the postseason because of NCAA violations.

"We don't control that," quarterback Curt Phillips said. "We just have to make the most of this opportunity."
