The Badgers host Indiana at 11 a.m. Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Indiana may not have its top running back against No. 17 Wisconsin this weekend.

Coach Kevin Wilson said Monday that Tevin Coleman is likely to sit out Saturday's game with a sprained ankle. Coleman was named the Big Ten's offensive player of the week after rushing 15 times for a career-high 215 yards and two touchdowns in a victory over Illinois. He scored on runs of 75 and 64 yards and averaged 14.3 yards per carry.

If Coleman can't go, the Hoosiers (4-5, 2-3 Big Ten), senior Stephen Houston, the former starter, would replace Coleman.

Indiana needs to win two of its last three -- at Wisconsin, at Ohio State and home against Purdue -- to become eligible for a bowl.
