Here’s a prediction for every game on the Badgers’ schedule.
ESPN’s updated “Football Power Index” updated last week.
Included in the FPI are projected results for every game on a team’s schedule.
Here’s what ESPN is predicting for every Wisconsin game this season. The percentage attached for each game is the win probability versus the respective opponent.
Friday, Sept. 1 vs. Utah State: Win (98%)
Saturday, Sept. 9 vs. Florida Atlantic: Win (98%)
Saturday, Sept. 16 @ BYU: Win (77%)
Saturday, Sept. 30 vs. Northwestern: Win (80%)
Saturday, Oct. 7 @ Nebraska: Win (83%)
Saturday, Oct. 14 vs. Purdue: Win (97%)
Saturday, Oct. 21 vs. Maryland: Win (94%)
Saturday, Oct. 28 @ Illinois: Win (94%)
Saturday, Nov. 4 @ Indiana: Win (84%)
Saturday, Nov. 11 vs. Iowa: Win (83.6%)
Saturday, Nov. 18 vs. Michigan: Win (69%)
Saturday, Nov. 25 @ Minnesota: Win (83%)
So, according to ESPN’s FPI, the Badgers are going to go 12-o in the regular season—with their toughest game coming against Michigan in week 11. There’s only one game that Wisconsin has less than a 75 percent chance of winning this upcoming season, and that’s their matchup versus the Wolverines.
