Wisconsin clinches berth in Big Ten Football Championship

With  a victory over Iowa on Saturday, Wisconsin secured a berth in the 2017  Big Ten Football Championship Game presented by Discover and at least a  share of the Big Ten West Division title. The East Division title  and participant in the Big Ten Football Championship Game will be  decided over the final two weeks of the season.   The Badgers secured at least a share of their fourth division title and  second in as many years after improving to 10-0 overall and 7-0 in  conference play. Wisconsin would clinch the outright division title with  a Purdue win over Northwestern later today. If Northwestern defeats  Purdue, the Wildcats would remain alive for a share of the West Division  title, but Wisconsin would advance to the Big Ten title game by winning  the potential tiebreaker.

The  2017 Big Ten Football Championship Game will be played on Saturday,  Dec. 2, at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium and will be broadcast  nationally on FOX with kickoff set for 8:17 p.m. ET. The winner  will earn the Amos Alonzo Stagg Championship Trophy and a chance to play  in one of the six bowls that comprise the College Football Playoff,  including the Rose Bowl Game.   Tickets for the Big Ten Football Championship Game remain available and can be purchased through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com  or by calling (800) 745-3000. In addition, ticket blocks are being held  for both Wisconsin and the representative from the East Division and  will be sold through university ticket offices.

A clear bag policy, similar to that used by the  NFL, College Football Playoff, other conference championship games and  on the majority of Big Ten campuses, will be in effect for the Big Ten  Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
