This Big 10 matchup features the Badgers traveling to Evanston to face the Wildcats.
Wisconsin is ranked 8th in the country and is in prime position to get a New Year’s Six Bowl, while Northwestern dropped to .500 after a close road loss to Ohio St.
Sophomore QB Alex Hornibrook has come down to earth after his supposed “coming out party” against Ohio St a few weeks ago.
In last week’s overtime win against undefeated Nebraska he was 10-16 for only 71 yards.
This team is not going to air the ball out, but it is clear they are developing Hornibrook into a game manager, and will not trust his arm to make a play in clutch situations.
Corey Clement has had 3 straight very good games for the Badgers, becoming one of the more consistent backs in the country.
He carried the ball 19 times for 82 yards against the Cornhuskers, but did not find the end zone.
Against a weak Northwestern run defense I expect him to have over 100 yards and a score.
Tight ends don’t get much love in college football anymore, but Troy Fumagalli is one of the best in the Big Ten.
The senior had 4 catches for 48 yards (long of 30). If he can find space to break open a big catch this week, the Wildcats secondary will be in for a long day.
The Badgers defense shut down the Nebraska offense.
Limiting Tommy Armstrong Jr, to one rushing touchdown and less than 155 passing yards. If they can play stellar defense again this week, it should be an easy victory for the Badgers.
Facing a talented but mistake prone secondary, Clayton Thorson had a pretty good game in the loss to Ohio St. last week.
He finished the day 22-42 for 256 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He also had 6 carries for 44 yards and a score, his best rushing performance of the season.
He goes up against a Badger defense that has trouble stopping mobile QBs, so I will look for Thorson to run a few read options to keep the defensive line guessing on designed runs.
Justin Jackson has turned his season around when he gets his hands on the football. During the last 6 games he has averaged 29 touches for 133 total yards per game.
He shouldn’t have any problem reaching the 25+ touch mark in this one as I expect a tough, defensive battle between the two teams. Look for him to reach the end zone catching a pass out of the backfield.
The Northwestern defense has played really good the last two weeks and I think they might have a good chance at a third straight performance.
Facing the most explosive offense in the conference, the Wildcats held Heisman hopeful JT Barrett out of the end zone, and limited him to just 223 yards passing.
The front seven will need to shore up their point of attack as Ohio State averaged 5.1 yards per carry and if Wisconsin can match those numbers it will be a long day for Northwestern.
