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.
