In the past week, we’ve seen a lot of photos surface a championship rings for teams that either didn’t win their conference championship or weren’t eligible to win their conference championship because of NCAA sanctions.
Wisconsin had no such problems.

Even though Wisconsin fell into the Big Ten title game after Ohio State and Penn State were ineligible because of NCAA punishments, the Badgers demolished Nebraska 70-31 in the Big Ten title game to earn their third consecutive Rose Bowl berth.
Unlike other rings we've seen, these don’t necessarily celebrate Wisconsin’s third place finish in the Big Ten Leaders Division, but rather their play in the title game. Still, there's no doubt some Ohio State and Penn State fans will claim the Badgers don’t deserve them.
They are nice, though.
