Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema says he's not beyond lobbying to help his fourth-ranked Badgers however he can.
Bielema is staying behind in Madison this week while his assistants go on the recruiting trail. He wants to be available to anyone who might want to discuss the Badgers (11-1, 7-1 Big Ten).
With the Badgers ranked fifth in the BCS standings, they appear destined for the Rose Bowl. A national title shot seems unlikely with undefeated Oregon, Auburn, TCU and a one-loss Stanford ahead of them.
Bielema says Wisconsin can play a close game with anyone in the country and is confident his team will land in a BCS bowl game after clinching a share of the Big Ten title on Saturday in a 70-23 win over Northwestern.
