The Wisconsin Badgers will stay at home for another feel good win versus the FAU Owls who will look to at least make some improvements after getting blown out at home versus the Navy Midshipmen.
The FAU Owls got off to a rocky start as they got blown out at home by Navy. The Owls led by midway through the second quarter 10-7, but then Navy took off.
Navy scored three unanswered touchdowns and five touchdowns versus FAU’s only field goal before tacking on a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to make it 42-19 which was the final score of the game.
It was a disappointing result as FAU came in as nine-point underdogs. They were expected to compete, at home, versus Navy, but were unable to do that.
FAU struggled to run the ball offensively and they had no answer for Navy’s running game as the Midshipmen ran to a tune of 415 yards gaining 6.2 yards a pop.
Now the Owls will travel up to Wisconsin to face a stronger defense and a different, but just as equally strong running attack. The Owls will be starting off the 2017 campaign 0-2.
After getting off to a slow start, the Wisconsin Badgers put up 59 unanswered points to cruise past the Utah Utes 59-10 in the season opener.
The Badger offense didn’t get things rolling until the second half. Sophomore quarterback Alex Hornibrook was able to settle and throw for three touchdowns.
The run game was no problem for the Badgers as they ran for 234 yards. Unfortunately, starting running back Bradick Shaw injured his leg and is questionable in this game versus FAU.
However, the loss won’t be too big of an impact as freshman running back Jonathan Taylor ran nine times for 87 yards. He should be able to have his way in this one versus FAU along with freshman halfback Garrett Groshek and whoever else carries the ball for the Badgers.
Defensively, Wisconsin was pretty strong throughout the game. The offense and special teams put the defense in some tight spots, but they were able to handle it for the most part.
The defense capped off a strong performance with a 99 yard pick six by senior safety Joe Ferguson.

I look for a similar result for Wisconsin in this one. They got the first game under their belt and they should have their way with the Owls who are coming off a loss to Navy in which they allowed 416 yards on the ground.
