WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez thinks his team's thrilling come-from-behind victory at Purdue could be the start of something special.

The Badgers jumped four spots in the AP Top 25 to No. 6 after their 20-17 win over Purdue on Saturday and are primed for a run at the national championship.

Wisconsin (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) has started the season with seven consecutive wins for just the second time since 1912, and its schedule sets up nicely for a run at an undefeated season.

"I really like this football team," Alvarez said. "I like the way they go about their business. They've been able to focus week-to-week."

With road wins over Ohio State and Purdue in consecutive weeks, the hardest part of the Badgers' schedule appears to be behind them. They host Northwestern and Minnesota, then finish the season on the road at Michigan State and Iowa.

"All the hard work we've put in is starting to pay off right now," receiver Brandon Williams said.
