Big Ten Championship Will Be Wilson’s 1st Indoor Game

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — When Russell Wilson chose Wisconsin for his one-year return to college football, he did so with the hope that he and his new teammates would be playing for something significant at the end of the season.

And while the 15th-ranked Badgers threw away a potential shot at the national championship with back-to-back road losses in October, Wilson still got his wish.

The Badgers will play No. 11 Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis on Saturday, with a trip to the Rose Bowl on the line.

With the Badgers preparing to play in the Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium, Wilson says it will be “awesome” to play in an NFL venue — and notes that it’s the first time he’s ever played a game indoors.
