MADISON, Wis.  — Wisconsin is on the verge of completing a rare turnaround.

After opening 1-3, the 18th-ranked Badgers have won seven straight and need only a victory Saturday at Minnesota to earn a trip to the Big Ten championship game next week in Indianapolis.

Wisconsin would become just the second team to reach a Power Five conference championship game after being multiple games below .500 that late in a season. Northwestern also got off to a 1-3 start before rallying to reach the Big Ten championship game in 2018.
