MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Big Ten game with high stakes may be decided in the trenches.

No. 19 Michigan's defensive front can swarm a backfield. No. 5 Wisconsin's offensive line likes to push people around, and it's only getting better with each game.

The Wolverines (8-2, 5-2, CFP No. 24) would love to shove the undefeated Badgers (10-0, 7-0, CFP No. 5) out of the College Football Playoff picture with a win on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium .


Big 12 title easy if OU, TCU win out

No. 20 Stanford, Cal have much at stake

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) While there will always be an emotional twist to the Big Game between Stanford and California, there is much more at stake for both teams heading into Saturday's matchup.

No. 7 Georgia has no room for error

Unbeaten No. 14 UCF fights distractions

No. 14 Central Florida is getting talked about a lot these days.

Where are the Knights ranked? Should they be ranked higher? Are they a lock to play in a major bowl if they win the American Athletic Conference? Can they go undefeated? If UCF does go undefeated, should they be considered for the College Football Playoff? How about coach Scott Frost? Is he going to Nebraska? Or maybe Florida? And, oh man, that game against No. 23 South Florida the day after Thanksgiving, with a spot in the AAC title game on the line. Won't that be epic?


No. 23 USF tops Tulsa to stay in AAC mix

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) No. 23 South Florida can finally look ahead to a much-anticipated showdown with No. 14 UCF.

Arkansas fires athletic director Long

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas fired athletic director Jeff Long on Wednesday, ending a nearly decade-long tenure that included the scandalous ouster of football coach Bobby Petrino and the continued mediocrity of the program under Bret Bielema.

Arkansas Chancellor Joseph Steinmetz said the university would honor the provisions in Long's contract, meaning the school could owe him more than $5 million by firing him.
