Georgia State is halfway through their toughest stretch of games on the season. This one isn’t going to be pretty. In just their first two games, the Panthers have surrendered 789 yards on the ground. This is the worst possible power 5 match-up for this Georgia State defense. Wisconsin loves to pound the rock behind their massive offensive line. This is a gut check type of game. At Camp Randall, against a team like Wisconsin, this is where we will see who has the grit and the conviction to keep fighting when things get tough.

The Badgers have one of the toughest schedules in the country this year, however, I don’t expect them to take Georgia State lightly. With Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State, and Iowa right around the corner the Badgers don’t have any time to waste. Paul Chryst will have his squad ready to go.

I expect the Badgers to force the issue on the ground, the Badgers have a stable of backs behind Corey Clement, who may not play this weekend, including Dare Ogunbowale, and Taiwan Deal.

Defensively I expect Wisconsin to play pretty vanilla. The Badgers are not going to show to much heading into their match up with Michigan State next weekend.

Score prediction: 49-10 Wisconsin

MVP: Dare Ogunbowale
