#10 Wisconsin at BYU (3:30 pm – ABC)
On paper, this isn’t a sexy matchup by any measure. The Badgers are a 16-point favorite and have a stellar defense going up against a weak offense. That being said, there is some potential for the game to be a good one.
Entering Saturday, both teams have allowed less than 20 points per game. Wisconsin is allowing an average of 12 while BYU has allowed just 17. While Wisconsin is known for always having a strong defense, BYU’s defense looks somewhat legitimate as well. In week one, the Cougars held LSU to just 27 points, which when considering the talent is impressive to a point. Wisconsin nearly doesn’t have the talent that LSU has but will be able to grind down opposing defenses.
If you’re a fan of more traditional football and watching defensive battles, this is a great choice. For those who enjoy more offensive games, there are plenty of options. Not to mention that Lavelle Edwards Stadium has one of the nicest backdrops in all of sports.
