Wisconsin got one step closer to a Big Ten West title and Big Ten Championship birth yesterday with its 35-28 win over Nebraska.

The result sets up a rivalry battle with Minnesota that allows the Badgers to advance to Indianapolis with a win. Paul Chryst’s team can still clinch with a loss to the Golden Gophers, though that would bring in an extremely complicated scenario.

Next week aside, Saturday became Wisconsin’s seventh straight triumph thanks to yet another dominant performance by freshman running back Braelon Allen. It was the first time in months we saw the defense allow points, though Graham Mertz and the offense proved to be good enough in the end to lead Wisconsin to a much-needed win.

FOXSports’ Joel Klatt is high on Wisconsin’s chances at a Big Ten title. Now with the win, he has moved the Badgers into his Top 10:
