The previous single-game high in FBS this season was 76 points by Navy last week at East Carolina.

Most Points vs Conference Opponent
Big Ten History

Wisconsin's three biggest point totals in a Big Ten game have come at the expense of Indiana. Prior to Saturday's 83-point outburst, the Badgers beat the Hoosiers 62-13 in 1994, and 59-0 in 1999.

The 83 points are the most in an AQ-conference game since 2000. The only other game since 2000 in which a team scored 80 points in an AQ-conference game was 2001 when West Virginia beat Rutgers, 80-7.

The 11 touchdowns scored by Wisconsin are the second-most in a Big Ten game since World War II. Ohio State scored 12 against Iowa in 1950.

Last season in men's basketball, Wisconsin topped the 80-point mark in a Big Ten game once. The Badgers scored 83 points … in Madison … against Indiana.
