The Wisconsin Badgers will look to get back on track when the Army Black Knights come to Madison this weekend. Wisconsin enters on heel of a shutout victory Illinois, while Army took their first loss of the season last weekend to Ball State.
HISTORY: This will mark the first time these historic schools lock arms in over 100 years. Wisconsin fell to Army’s fellow independent school Notre Dame last month.
Army Black Knights
Army jumped out to a fast 4-0 start, hammering teams with their physical run game, before falling to Ball State last weekend. The Black Knights were down 21 points after the first, and couldn’t recover on the road, suffering their first loss of the season.
Senior quarterback Christian Anderson’s absence was felt last weekend. Jemel Jones stepped in and fought back admirably, but Anderson’s expected return this weekend could give the Army offense a boost. Anderson ran for a career-high 236 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown against Miami (OH), and his presence will get the Black Knights much more of a fighting chance this weekend.
Anderson is such a dynamic piece to the run game, but he has managed to throw touchdown passes in three of his four starts, despite leading Army’s respectfully nonexistent aerial attack. He also leads the team 431 rushing yards, and he’s going a strong group of backs behind him.
Five other Black Knights have rushed for atleast 100 yards, and Tyrell Robinson leads the bunch with 237 yards on 25 touches. Jakobi Buchanan leads the backs in touchdowns with 4, while Anthony Adkins scored in three straight games prior to last weekend’s loss.
Wisconsin was able to get back in the win column after having one of the tougher schedules in the nation to start the season. The Badgers uncharacteristically enter this one 2-3, with a good chance of getting back to .500. After a pair of tough losses to Notre Dame and Michigan, Wisconsin shut out Illinois on the road to earn their first Big Ten win of the season
Graham Mertz has been eased back in after a terrible showing in Chicago against Notre Dame. Despite throwing an interception, he managed last week’s road win well, completing 10 of 19 passes, and not taking a sack. With Iowa looming, the sophomore quarterback will have to raise his play soon.
The Badgers have leaned on Chez Mellusi heavily through their first month of the season. Mellusi followed up a tough showing against Michigan with a season-high 145-yard performance. Mellusi leads the team with 477 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Freshman bruiser back Braelon Allen had a big game last week as well, going for 131 yards, including a 23-yard rushing touchdown.
With senior wideout Danny Davis III on the shelf, fellow senior wideout Kendric Pryor leads the team with 16 catches for 206 receiving yards, and he’s 14 away from 1,000 for his career.
Free Week 7 NCAA Football Pick
This may just serve as Army’s tuneup for Navy as Wisconsin enters with one of more run-heavy offenses in the nation. It’s should be a slugfest, but the total presents a rare opportunity in college football.
4* Free Week 7 NCAA Betting Pick: Over 39.5
Alright, this number is far too low to not target. Despite Wisconsin’s offense failing to showing up in any of their three losses, they showed the ability to run the ball effectively last weekend. Only one team in nation runs the ball better than Army, so points are sure to be scored on both sides here. With the Black Knights passing game nonexistent, and the Badgers struggling behind center themselves, look out for what could be a really physical game.
Take the over here, and don’t overlook the upset possibility, as this game could much more closer then we think.
