Michigan vs. Wisconsin is one of the biggest games of the weekend, with two top 10 Big Ten teams battling it out. FOX Sports 1’s Colin Cowherd doesn’t think the game will be close.
The Wolverines are 10-point favorites over the Badgers at home. Michigan, the No. 4 team in the country, has looked very good so far this season, but Wisconsin has been one of the more surprising clubs in the country, with wins over LSU and Michigan State, a week after the Spartans landed a big win at Notre Dame. Wisconsin’s 30-6 win has Badger fans riding high, but FS1’s Colin Cowherd isn’t impressed.
During his normal spot with Joel Klatt on The Herd, Cowherd argued that Wisconsin got all kinds of breaks against the Spartans, and that the Wolverines are more talented and don’t make mistakes on offense. Therefore, Cowherd expects a blowout home win for the Wolverines. He’s so confident, he’s made it is “lock of the year,” with a fancy graphic and everything.
Michigan definitely deserves to be a favorite in this one, based on how the season has played out, but the Badgers have earned respect. Their game against Georgia State was not impressive, but on top of the LSU and Michigan State wins, the Badgers also blew out a decent MAC squad in Akron. We’re excited for this one.
Michigan vs. Wisconsin kicks off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
