Wisconsin’s Big Ten West hopes are alive.
Iowa took down unbeaten Minnesota 23-19 on Saturday afternoon. It dropped the Gophers to 6-1 in the conference, just one game in front of the 5-2 Badgers. It means if both teams win next week — Wisconsin hosts Purdue and Minnesota is at Northwestern — then the final game of the season in Minneapolis will be for the division title and berth in the Big Ten title game.
As you’d imagine, current and former Badgers, along with fans and media, were all talking about the outcome in Iowa City and took to Twitter to show it.
Won’t say this often….but preciate ya Iowa…see you gophers in two weeks! #onwisconsin

No. 8 Minnesota falls victim to the annual Iowa November takedown.
(Technically Iowa was favored.)
