Know Your Opponent: Wisconsin Badgers

By  | 

Saturday's game between Nebraska and Wisconsin begins the start of Big Ten Conference play for both teams - and unlike last season, this is Nebraska's second season in the Big Ten.

Wisconsin enters Saturday's contest with an identical 3-1 record as do the Huskers, although the Badgers have struggled in their first three games of the year, pulling out a narrow five-point win against Northern Iowa in its season opener and then lost a three-point game to Oregon State 10-7 in Corvallis.

Despite Wisconsin being 3-1 on the year, the Badgers enter Saturday's game un-ranked in the Associated Press poll, however, they are #23 in the coaches poll.

Utah State entered Madison with a win in mind and they nearly upset the Badgers, but Wisconsin prevailed 16-14. UW defeated UTEP last Saturday 37-26.

Wisconsin running back Montee Ball is back for the Badgers in his senior season and has 360 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns so far this year.
