Wisconsin split its first two Big Ten games before it became exclusively conference season, beating Indiana at home and losing on the road to Rutgers.
Since the conference season did get fully underway in 2020, it has been fantastic. The Badgers won at Ohio State, at Penn State and at home against Maryland. Only a one-point home loss to Illinois has blemished the Badgers run in the new year.
Sports-Reference’s Simple Rating System (SRS) still has Wisconsin ninth in the conference (twelve of the fourteen teams have an SRS rating between 14.5 and 22.3, however, which makes the Big Ten by far the deepest conference in the country).
Ohio State is second and Maryland is third. Wisconsin has defeated both of those teams already. Number one is Michigan State.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans are also number one in terms of wins and losses but Wisconsin is in the second slot, with a chance to pull into a tie with Sparty with a win on Friday night.
They aren’t undefeated any longer after suffering a 29-point loss at Mackey Arena against Purdue their last time out.
MSU shot two-of-sixteen from three-point range and turned it over eighteen times (to Purdue’s six) in a 71–42 embarrassment.
But prior to getting a little taste of what it’s like to be on the losing side of such a blowout, Michigan State has run through its first three games of Big Ten basketball in 2020 with wins over Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota, all at the Breslin Center, by twenty, eighteen and sixteen points, respectively.
Only two of MSU’s first seven conference games will have come on the road, after it plays this one. It’s no surprise, then, that it has jumped out front of the standings.
Staying there may be a challenge. Not only do the Spartans have lots of road tilts down the stretch, they have yet to play Maryland nor Ohio State.

Free Wisconsin Badgers vs. Michigan State Spartans NCAAB Prediction: Sparty.
The Badgers have turned into road warriors after struggling to win outside of the Kohl Center to begin the year.
But Michigan State goes on the road for three of its next four games, following this one, and Tom Izzo will preach the importance of getting these wins at home, while his team is there.
Give this one to the Spartans, who could run away from the Badgers with the students at their backs.
