Wisconsin vs. Iowa.

"Montee Ball's touchdown with 1:06 left put No. 10 Wisconsin ahead of No. 13 Iowa, and the Badgers defense held at the end to lift UW to a win. A blocked extra point proved to be the difference for Wisconsin."

A blocked extra point and back to back unbelievable brain farts on behalf of the Iowa QB in the closing seconds.

Onnnn Wisconsin, Onnnnn Wisconsin!!!!

Bad time management on the other side helped though.

Bucky flexing muscles on the road. What a huge win. Great call by Wisconsin on the fake punt with 6 minutes left, down 6 points. WOW.

Bielema haters sucking lemons again.

Awesome ending! Great win for Wisconsin. But I have to wonder, who was in charge of Iowa's time management, Mike McCarthy?

Becoming a football fan, eh? Undefeatedness will do that. Watch out for the bitter WAC fans.

Hooray for the Badgers!

My alma mater lost again. :(

The headlines are deceiving. J. J. Watt won this game.

HT, you forget MSU.

As a die-hard Nebraska Husker fans, my husband and I breathed a sigh of relief to see this wonderful win by Wisconsin today since we have to play Iowa State next week. The loss to Texas was devastating last week - we squeaked past Oklahoma State today. I love college football - we don't have a pro-team here in Nebraska so Huskers are Kings in football. Long time reader first-time commenter BTW.

I listened to this on XM. Awesome college classic. XM played the Iowa feed--I agree with one of the exasperated announcers who said the botched time management was the fault of bad coaching.

My Nittany Lions beat mighty Minnesota. Yay.

Good for the Badgers -- that's two very good wins in two weeks, which is something they hadn't done before under Bielema. He's making progress as a coach. And I'm especially happy for Montee Ball, the forgotten man in the Badger running back rotation.

And let's give props to my Beloit College Bucs for beating Monmouth 34-27 today. Sub-optimal D-III football, baby!

Big Ten football will get interesting next year when Nebraska starts in there. Should make it very interesting.

Hey, Garage, Bielema's been just ok, until this second big win in a row. Some of us aren't haters, we're just waiting to see if he can get to the next level. Things are looking up, today. Yay!

Did I just hear thunder?

My son and I watched the LSU-auburn game. The Auburn QB is really fun to watch.

Glad to see Bucky win on the road.

The Big 10 is continually overrated. Year in and year out they play in bowl games against other conferences and lose. This past bowl season[2009/10] the Big 10 finally had a winning record[barely 4-3]. Here's the prior 6 seasons:

2003: 3-5

2004: 3-3

2005: 3-4

2006: 2-5

2007: 3-5

2008: 1-6

Stats don't lie you Big 10 lemmings.

I am a little worried about how the Wolverines will fare against the Badgers....
