BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WDRB) – Adam Rittenberg has covered Big Ten college football for the last five seasons. He has attended games at every stadium in the league except one – Memorial Stadium at Indiana University. 

Guess who is sitting two seats to my right in the IU press box today for the Indiana-Wisconsin game?

Adam Rittenberg.

Two seasons ago the Hoosiers were beaten 83-20 by Wisconsin. Last year IU cut the margin to 59-7. Today the point spread is Wisconsin by seven points.

If Indiana wins, the Hoosiers would move to 3-3 in the Leaders division, tied with Wisconsin. Although Ohio State and Penn State would remain ahead of both teams, Ohio State and Penn State are irrelevant this season, ineligible for post-season play.

So Indiana would face road trips to Penn State and Purdue with a chance to win the division and play in the Big Ten championship game.

That's why people are saying this is the most meaningful football game Indiana has played since 2007.
