A matchup between two one loss Big Ten teams is basically an elimination game in terms of the College Football Playoffs. College GameDay will be headed to Ann Arbor for this matchup between the Badgers and Wolverines.
Wisconsin defeated Michigan last season 24-10 and will be looking for a second consecutive win over the Wolverines.
Wisconsin improved to 4-1 and 2-0 in the Big Ten after they handled Nebraska last weekend. They are currently in the drivers seat in the Big Ten West where the second best team by conference record is Northwestern.
The Badgers have an excellent rushing an average 287 rushing yards per game. This ranks 4th in the country and will play a huge role in this game against the Wolverines. Their passing game is lacking in production, so if Michigan is able to shut down the run, Wisconsin will be in trouble.
The defense has been solid this year, with 24 points being the most scored on the Badgers through their five games. With Michigan’s offense having some struggles this year, the Badger defense should be able to force some mistakes.
Michigan easily took care of Maryland and scored 42 in the win. They have yet to lose a conference game, which could set up a crucial matchup with the Buckeyes at the end of the year. First, they need to focus on the Badgers who should put up a fight of their own.
Since their opening game where the Wolverines scored just 17 points, they have picked up the offense significantly. They had one game since opening week where they only scored 20, but other than that they are scoring more than 42 points per game. Expect the Wolverines to find success at home, but it is unlikely they will continue scoring in the 40’s against a defense like Wisconsin’s.
The Wolverines rank 1st in total yards allowed per game and are 1st in passing yards per game. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, Wisconsin is pretty much a rushing only team. They do however rank 6th in rushing yards allowed per game so there is a chance the Wolverines could shut down the Badgers completely.
