The top game on this week's early slate is pretty clearly the Big Ten showdown between No. 13 Wisconsin and No. 11 Michigan.

The game represents a huge opportunity for both sides. Michigan has looked pretty sloppy on offense this year, after making the big hire of former Alabama assistant Josh Gattis to remake that unit.

Putting up points on a Wisconsin defense that is yet to surrender one this year would be a very good sign for the Wolverines. Of course, the Badgers have a much different plan on Saturday.

Ahead of tomorrow's huge game, Wisconsin put out an awesome hype video for the occasion.

Badgers great Joe Thomas, a former No. 3 overall pick and 10-time Pro Bowler for the Cleveland Browns, was on hand to star in and narrate the video. The recent retiree is a pretty appropriate choice for the role.

Overall, Michigan has dominated the all-time series between these two, owning a 51-15-1 record against the Badgers. Recent history has been much more balanced, as Wisconsin has developed into one of the more consistent programs in the country.

The Badgers are 5-4 against Michigan since 2005, though the Wolverines have taken two-of-three in the set of games starting in 2016. Wisconsin won the last game at Camp Randall Stadium back in 2017, 24-10.

UW is a 3.5-point home favorite in the game. FPI gives Wisconsin a 70.2-percent chance to win the game, while SP+ is right there at 70-percent, with a projected score of 27-18 in favor of the Badgers.
