It's the undercard to the main event. Before the Packers take on the Bears in the NFC Championship, the Badgers take on the Wildcats in Evanston, just miles away from Solider Field. The winner of this game won't go to the Super Bowl, but if Northwestern wants to go to the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever, it needs to win this game badly. In fact, this is probably a must-win for the Wildcats.
