Xtra Points: Badgers headed for Big Ten title game

The Wisconsin Badgers are in the Big Ten Championship game Saturday night. But does that mean, even if they win, that they have a chance to make the College Football Playoff? It’s certainly a strange year in college football, and Gazette sports editor Eric Schmoldt and writer John Barry break down the playoff possibilities on this week’s episode of Xtra Points.

They also talk the early results for UW men’s basketball, UW-Whitewater’s Division III quarterfinal game this week, the Packers’ much-needed victory on Monday night and some early winter results in area high school sports.

Our theme music is “Rock Hybrid” by Kevin MacLeod. Find more of his work at his website.
