Wisconsin looks for back to back giant road upsets as they head into Michigan State to take on the Spartans on Thursday night.
Wisconsin grabbed a marquee road win in Maryland as they now make a push toward the top of the Big 10.
As for the Spartans, they sit 8-5 in conference play, but that is good enough for only 8th place in the conference.
The Badgers haven’t been the most consistent team in the nation, but they have finally picked up steam and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Wisconsin has ran off three straight wins, with the 3rd being quite the resume builder as they knocked off the #3 Maryland Terrapins on the road. The win pushed the Badgers to 16-9 and 8-4 in the conference as they are now making a surprising push toward the top of the Big 10 as they sit just 2.5 games out.
With just 6 games remaining, the Badgers certainly have the schedule to put together more tournament resume wins. They’ll get this one against #8 Michigan State on the road, #4 Iowa on the road, and #17 Purdue also on the road.
With all three of those on the road, the Badgers will look to build off a 4-3 true road game record. The Badgers defeated the Spartans on their home floor 67-66 as they used a late push to come from behind and steal the win.
The Spartans may not be up there in the Big 10 race, but they sit at #8 in the nation and are making a push toward a likely 2 seed in the tournament.
With 5 games remaining on their Big 10 schedule, the Spartans will be favorite in all 5 and should be able to handle the competition.
After this one against Wisconsin, they’ll deal with Ohio State twice, Rutgers once, and then Penn State one time.
Michigan State comes in fresh off a blowout home win over Indiana as they routed the Hoosiers 88-69. The Spartans have been a solid home team this season, going 11-2 SU while outscoring the opposition by 20 points per game.
The Spartans will have revenge on their minds as the Badgers knocked them off when they sat at #4 in the nation. Michigan State led by 4 with just a minute to go before the Badgers rattled off 5 straight to steal the victory.
