The biggest Big Ten game of the season to date is taking place in Madison on Saturday afternoon.

Wisconsin, the No. 13 team in the country, is hosting No. 11 Michigan at Camp Randall Stadium at noon E.T.

The Wolverines are the higher-ranked team, though the Badgers enter Saturday's contest as the favorite.

Associated Press national college football writer Ralph D. Russo has made his score pick for the game. He likes the home team.

No. 11 Michigan (plus 3½) at No. 13 Wisconsin

Wolverines have lost four straight at Camp Randall, dating to 2005 ... WISCONSIN 24-20.

Michigan needs this one - badly. The Wolverines came into the season with College Football Playoff hopes, though they've largely underwhelmed through two weeks.

Wisconsin will be tough to beat, though, and most experts are going with the Badgers at home.

The Wolverines will need the Shea Patterson-led offense to show up in a major way on Saturday afternoon if they're going to emerge with a win.

Michigan and Wisconsin are set to kick off at noon E.T. on FOX.
