Wisconsin got absolutely shafted here. Alvarez and Bielema have been talking pretty and saying UW got everything they wanted out of this, but the Badgers don't have a single significant rivalry game within their own division. They only play one border game -- with Illinois, a tremendously inconsequential football team. And their long-running war with Iowa, one of the most heated rivalries in the conference, is absent from both the 2011 and 2012 schedules.

But that leaves Wisconsin (like Ohio State and Michigan) with just one rotating inter-divisional game per season. In addition to Iowa, say goodbye to games with Northwestern, Michigan, and Michigan State. All border games.
