The Fighting Illini of Illinois are travelling to Madison this Saturday to take on the #7 Wisconsin Badgers in a Big Ten showdown.
These teams have had very different seasons so far, but both are coming off of wins last week.
The Illini are coming off a 31-27 upset win over division rival Michigan State in their last game, and they are hoping to do it again this week.
They are currently in 6th place in the stacked Big Ten West. The Badgers are on a three-game win streak, including a 21-7 win at Northwestern last week.
They are in 3rd place, behind Ohio State and Michigan.
Illinois Fighting Illini
The Illini have had an up and down season this year, but it has mostly been down.
They started well with a cupcake win over Murray State at home before dropping four in a row. Since then, they have won two of four, both over Big Ten opponents.
Illinois has been anemic on offense this year and lack any real passing attack.
They rank 113th in FBS in passing with only 164.4 yards through the air per game. They only score 23.8 points per game which is tied for 102nd in the nation.
They have been much better on defense, and it has been the key factor in their three wins. They allow 29.4 points per game which ranks 80th.
The #7 Badgers began the season with a big 16-14 upset win over LSU at home, and they have not looked back since.
Their only two losses this year came in consecutive weeks at #2 Michigan and at home against #6 Ohio State. Both games were decided by one touchdown, and they have won three in a row since.
Wisconsin has been successful this year by playing old-school, smash-mouth football.
They run the ball well, averaging 180.4 yards per game on the ground. Running back Corey Clement leads the way with 805 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
Defensively, they have been stifling all year, holding teams to only 13.8 points per game. That is tied for 3rd in the nation.

Free Week 11 NCAA Football Prediction
The Illini will have to play perfectly to win this one. They have been unable to move the ball all year and now have to try to do it against one of the best defenses in college football.
If this one gets to garbage time early, they may be able to score some. But even the second-string Wisconsin defense can stop the Illinois passing game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNDER 39.0
Wisconsin knows they need to win out to have any chance of playing for the Big Ten Championship or make the College Football Playoff.
They have a lot to play for in this one, and I don’t expect them to overlook Illinois.
