Badgers-Spartans Ready for Rare Re-Match

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Beating Wisconsin once isn't good enough for Michigan State.

The Spartans will have to do it all over again Saturday night when Kirk Cousins hopes to lead No. 11 Michigan State to its first Rose Bowl appearance since 1988. No. 15 Wisconsin is chasing back-to-back conference titles for only the third time in school history.

The inaugural Big Ten title game is a rematch of one of college football's most exciting games of 2011. The Spartans won 37-31 after Michigan State receiver Keith Nichol pulled in a last-second pass and lunged across the goal line

Wisconsin (10-2) is the only Football Bowl Subdivision team ranked in the top five in scoring offense (44.8 points) and scoring defense (15.2).
