College Football:

The first set of College Football Playoff rankings come out tonight, but that doesn’t have the Badgers worried. The team is focused on their game this weekend against Indiana in Bloomington. The 8-0 Badgers currently sit at number four in the Associated Press Top 25 after beating Illinois 24-10 last Saturday. Head Coach Paul Chryst says they have to play who is on the schedule each year, no matter the perceived difficulty and that they spend a lot of energy getting their guys focused on their week-to-week schedule. Chryst says “The only thing that really matters and that you try to influence is your players and how can we make the most of the moments we’re in”. Kickoff between the Badgers and Hoosiers is at 11am Saturday. Hear the game on KFIZ.
