This is one of the games that is making this first week of the season so fun. LSU is expected to push Alabama as hard as they ever have and probably should be the favourite in the SEC.
If they want to make the playoffs though they have to get off to a good start.
Wisconsin is always under the radar at this time of year, especially so this season where they are not even a favourite in their own division.
It is hard to believe but we all know that if you under estimate the Badgers you can expect a punch in the mouth.
Once again Leonard Fournette is going to be one of the signature players of the season.
The powerful running back is probably the most pro ready prospect in the college game and he is surrounded by a lot of other prospects who will be playing on Sundays.
LSU is really good, they just have to put it together.
An interesting wrinkle to this one is that LSU hired the Wisconsin defensive coordinator in the offseason.
He coached the best defense in the country lastyle year and now he has even more talent at his disposal.
The Tigers are especially strong up front and in the secondary. It is going to be tough for Wisconsin to move the ball.
The Badgers weren’t really themselves last season. With Corey Clement hurt they were not able to run the ball the way they normally do. That was with an experienced quarterback too.
This season theyes have no such luxury.
They at least need some sort of threat of the pass against the good teams on their schedule.
If the Badgers are going to exceed expectations this season they are going to need their defense to lead the way. Justin Wilcox iso the new DC.
He has a reputation that gets him hired but his last couple of stops have not been great successes.
Wisconsin will not be a winner this season if their defense is average. This will be a stiff early test.

This is a big game and Wisconsin will have an edge with the location but on the field these teams are not that close. Kudos to the Badgers for not being shy about their scheduling but they are unlikely to keep it competitive.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: LSU -9.5
Fournette will be the key. He is bangedition up but expected to play. As long as he is healthy enough to be effective the Tigers should role. I think the Badgers will get beat up in a way we seldom see. They have not fared well against the SEC recently.
