For the third time in six years the Wisconsin football team is playing Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game.

Kickoff is Saturday night in Indianapolis, but Badgers fans are already getting amped up for the game. They're looking for revenge after a disappointing blowout loss to the Buckeyes earlier in the season.

There's more than just a football game to watch for those coming out to Indiana. On Friday, the Championship Game's Fan Fest was held in Indianapolis. At Fan Fest, you can check out your 40-yard dash time, kick a field goal and throw a touchdown pass. For a game that was relatively short notice, some Wisconsin fans come to this every year.

"My dad [said] if the [Badgers] win we are going to the big game and the second they won in the 4th quarter he booked a hotel room, took off work and now i'm down here," said Flynn Vertz, a Wisconsin fan from Milwaukee.

"We've been taking in the fan fest for three years now. This is a no-brainer for a Friday night and just enjoying the free activities before the big game," said Jason Mueller, a Wisconsin fan from Wisconsin Rapids.

This game will mark the 6th Wisconsin appearance in the 9-year history of the Big Ten Championship - which is the most by any Big Ten team.
