There are some question marks surrounding Wisconsin as it heads into its biggest game of the season.
The undefeated Badgers will face off against Ohio State (10-2 overall, 8-1 in the Big Ten) in the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday, but they may have to do it without running back Bradrick Shaw.
Shaw was labeled as questionable for the matchup against the Buckeyes on Wisconsin’s injury report released on Monday.

Shaw left in the first half against Minnesota on Saturday with a left leg injury and did not return.
While the Badgers still have players like Jonathan Taylor and Chris James to hand the ball off to, not having Shaw could impact Wisconsin’s rushing game against Ohio State’s strong run defense.
In addition to Shaw, outside linebacker Noah Burks, safety D’Cota Dixon and tight end Zander Neuville were all also marked down as questionable for the game.
Burks left in the second quarter of Saturday’s game with a left leg injury, while Neuville left in the first quarter with an injury to his right leg. Dixon entered the game as questionable with a right leg injury, but played limited snaps in the 31-0 victory.
The good news for Wisconsin, though, is that defensive back Lubern Figaro, who missed Saturday’s game with a right leg injury, and inside linebacker Chris Orr, who played in limited snaps due to a left leg injury, were not listed on the injury report.
Wisconsin and Ohio State will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday (on FOX) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
