It’s a non conference match up on Saturday afternoon at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah. The Wisconsin Badgers come to town to take on the BYU Cougars.
These two teams have played twice with each team winning one game. The Badgers won the last match up in 2013 winning by a final score of 23-13.
The Wisconsin Badgers are always near the top of the Big Ten, and after watching them the first two weeks that looks like it will be the case again in this year.
In the first two games they have combined to beat their opponents 90-24. The offense has looked really good, and the defense has looked good for the most part.
For the Badgers to reach their goals this year Alex Hornibrook needs to be good, and for the most part he has been so far. Against FAU he went up for 201 yards and one touchdown and one interception.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the defense and creating turnovers. They can’t let the Cougars get settled in early or that will give them some confidence.
They need to get pressure on the quarterback early, and really make the throws rushed and off target. If they can do that the offense will do their job and it will be a blowout.
On the other side of this match up is the BYU Cougars who haven’t looked good to start the season which is disappointing because they had high hopes coming into this one.
After beating Portland State 20-6 they have been shutout by LSU and in their last game lost to Utah 19-13. The offense hasn’t been good and that has led to all the issues.
They had high hopes for Tanner Mangum coming into this season, but he hasn’t lived up to those. In three starts he has only thrown for 466 yards and only two touchdowns.
He has also thrown three interceptions along the way.
To win this game of course the defense needs to be good, but the offense needs to be a lot better. They aren’t going to be able to score only 15 or 20 points and expect to win this game.
To have a real chance they are probably going to need to put up 25 or 30 which is a real tough task against the Wisconsin Badgers defense.
