UW Badgers football team up; UW Badgers football team down

UP: UW Badgers football team. The Badgers win a third straight trip to the Rose Bowl despite a lackluster 8-5 season, including four losses in the Big 10. The Badgers clinched the bowl game with a 70-31 rout of Nebraska last week. The more deserving Ohio Buckeyes, who finished the season undefeated, are on suspension and ineligible to play in the bowl.

DOWN: UW Badgers football team. Coach Bret Bielema shocks the university with the news that he's taking the head coaching job for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Reports say Bielema signed a six-year contract for a $3.2 million annual salary. UW athletic director Barry Alvarez admits he was "very surprised" by the announcement.
