The Wisconsin Badgers got a huge Sunday night 71-69 win over Minnesota.

Despite the fact we played like trash for the vast majority of the game tonight, we were able to squeak out a win. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

At the end of the day, that’s all you can ask for.

We truly played terribly tonight. In fact, tonight was one of the worst performances for the Badgers in a long time.

The fact we got the job done, made plays late and got the win is all that matters.

March is where you find out what teams are made of. While we didn’t look good tonight, this was a huge rivalry game and Wisconsin fought like hell for a win.

We could have folded and caved when the going got tough late. Instead, we clawed our way to a win.

It says a lot about a team and the roster when our backs are to the wall, and we chose to get up to fight another round.

Now, we close out against Northwestern and Indiana. We’re sitting at 19-10, and everything we want is right in front of us.

Now, let’s get to work on another victory.
