Big 10 action features a Top 10 matchup with major BCS Playoff implications on the line.
The #10 Badgers head into East Lansing on Saturday at high noon to take on the #8 Michigan State Spartans as both teams look for a one up in the Big 10, along with the BCS race.
#10 Wisconsin Badgers Badgers
The Badgers signature win in their season opener against LSU has highlighted their 3-0 start.
However, last week was a clear look ahead spot and they certainly got caught looking ahead. They welcomed in Georgia Southern and needed a late touchdown to secure a 23-17 win as they nearly saw themselves have one of the worst losses in program history.
Still, they managed the win to set themselves up here for a huge clash.
What’s been the difference this season for the Badgers is that they are a much more balanced team than we’ve seen in the past.
Wisconsin has averaged 237 pass yards while rushing for 205 yards per game.
Despite that, QB Bart Houston only managed just 91 pass yards in the slim win last week, as the Wisconsin offense just looked all out of sorts and couldn’t get any rhythm going. If they get off to a slow start here, this Spartans defense will have a field day with their blitz packages.
#8 Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans enter play 2-0 and come in off an extremely impressive road win under the lights in Notre Dame.
Michigan State opened a 36-7 lead over the Fighting Irish with just 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. The Spartans defense did nearly blow the lead, but they still managed to hold off the late rush, grabbing a signature win.
Now, the focus here is on the conference. Michigan State likely can’t punch their ticket into the BCS Playoff unless they win the conference and one loss in Big 10 play may be enough to push them out with Ohio State and Michigan both in their division.
The Spartans key to victory against Notre Dame and what will be here against Wisconsin is stopping the run. Michigan State has allowed just 72 yards on the ground through their first 2 games.
The last meeting between these two teams came back in 2012, when the Spartans defeated the Badgers 16-13.
