The University of Wisconsin can still get to a bowl game if it can win two of its remaining three regular season contests, starting on Saturday at Indiana.

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Badgers' quarterback Justin Sherer. He's a native of Cicero, Ind., and as a fourth-year junior, Sherer got to play in Wisconsin's last game at Indiana two years ago - a 52-17 romp over the Hoosiers.

Sherer's numbers were not impressive that day 0-2 in pass completions with an interception.

Sherer plans to be better on Saturday, but he says the return to his home state won't add any more pressure. He says the key is to eliminate mental mistakes.

Badger Head Coach Bret Bielema said the Badgers had too many mental errors in their one-point loss at Michigan State last weekend.

It dropped Wisconsin to 4-5 overall and 1-5 in the Big Ten. Indiana is also 1-5 in the conference and 3-and-6 overall.

Sherer is 1-2 after replacing starter Allan Evridge. He has completed 51-percent of his passes, averaging 161 yards a game.
