TV Schedule: Saturday, Nov. 21, 3:30 p.m. ET, BTN

Stadium: Camp Randall Stadium

Line: Wisconsin (-11)

This might not be Michigan State vs. Ohio State big, but it is still a top 25 showdown between two teams that will be partaking in bowl season.

Not to mention, the Wisconsin Badgers could still make the Big 10 title game if a miracle happens. The Badgers are only one game back in the Big 10 West standings, but the Iowa Hawkeyes knocked off Wisconsin earlier in the year. There is still a chance, though. You know, if Iowa somehow loses its last two games after winning its first 10 of 2015.

Trying not to get too far ahead of ourselves, Wisconsin must take down the Northwestern Wildcats in Week 12 first.

Although the Wildcats have no shot at the playoff or the Big 10 championship, they do have a pretty impressive resume regardless, which means they should land a pretty solid bowl.

Northwestern’s biggest win actually came in the very first game of 2015, which was played against the Stanford Cardinal.

One major reason why Wisconsin could end up winning this battle: The Badgers are only giving up 12.3 PPG on average, which is the best in the country. They also bring a five-game winning streak to the table, but the Wildcats are on their own three-gamer.

The biggest difference could be the home-field advantage for Wisconsin.

Either way, top 25 teams battling it out always makes for a great showing — well, that is at least the hope.

PREDICTION: Wildcats 10, Badgers 21
