This week will be Michigan’s 5th straight game at home where Wisconsin and Michigan both will try to remain unbeaten and improve their record to 5-0.
So far this year the Wolverines have been able to take care of Hawaii, Central Florida, Colorado, and Penn State.
The Badgers will be on the road for the second straight week after dominating Michigan State last week in Lansing Michigan.
The Badgers were able to knock the Spartans out of rhythm and will look to do the same to the Wolverines this week.
It has been a crazy start to the 2016 season for Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight.
From not knowing if he had the starting position just days before the season began, to throwing an interception on the first snap of the year against Hawaii, to now having thrown nine touchdown passes without adding another interception to the total.
He has connected on 72 of 114 passes for a total of 875 yards through the air.
Not much was required of him last week after Michigan jumped out to an early lead against Penn State and never looked back.
The Wisconsin defense had a field day last week against Michigan State, creating four turnovers, one fumble and three interceptions.
The Badgers were able to hold Michigan States leading rusher to 61 yards on the ground off of 14 carries, with 19 of them being picked up on his first run of the game.
The Badgers were great as a defense last week stopping the Spartans on both 1st and 2nd down.
As a result, Michigan State was forced to start taking shots down the field, something they aren’t exactly comfortable with.
My stopping the ground attack, the Badgers were able to sit back and coverage and tear apart Michigan States passing game.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
The Wolverines have been a force to be reckoned with while on offense this season, but they haven’t played a defense as tough as Wisconsin’s yet this season.
Wisconsin was able to keep LSU in check earlier this year and held Michigan State to just six points last week.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Wisconsin +10
This game may just be a preview of who is going to win the Big Ten this year.
Michigan has been moving up in the rankings, but Wisconsin can use this game to gain even more attention for themselves.
I am not sure if the Badgers will be able to do enough with the ball to win the game outright, but their defense is definitely good enough to at least cover the spread.
If Wisconsin is able to keep Michigan’s ground game to a minimum the way they did Michigan State, the Badgers could turn a turnover or two into enough points to come away with the victory.
