We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Illinois Fighting Illini make the trip to Camp Randall Stadium to take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
The Badgers have won the last eight games played between the two teams.
Illinois Fighting Illini
The Illinois Fighting Illini come into this game with a 3-3 record, but don’t let the record fool you, this isn’t a very good team.
They were expected to be competitive in their last game against Purdue, but the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 46-7 defeat.
That has been the issue the entire year for the Fighting Illini. They can’t seem to find a quarterback to lead them and it’s something that needs to be figured out.
In the three losses, they haven’t been able to score above 24 points, and in this game the offense needs to get into a rhythm early.
If the offense struggles, they won’t have a chance to come out ahead. If the offense gets out to a strong start they might be able to keep this game close.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wisconsin Badgers who have to be disappointed with the way they have started the season.
They come into this game off a really bad against the Michigan Wolverines. The Badgers are known for being a defensive team but against the Wolverines, they gave up 38 points.
On the offensive side the Badgers are led by Alex Hornibrook who has thrown for 1063 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions.
He looked really bad against the Wolverines but this is a good opportunity to bounce back in a big way.
To win this game the Badgers need to get out to a fast start. The offense needs to get rolling again, and if they don’t it will be some bad mojo going into the rest of the season.
