Heading into the 2018 season, the Wisconsin Badgers were picked by many to make the College Football Playoff. Unfortunately, their chances took a huge hit last weekend, as they lost to BYU at home.
Well, Wisconsin’s schedule won’t get any easier. Coming off their devastating defeat, the Badgers will now face Iowa on the road.
The Hawkeyes are undefeated so far, in large part because of their balance on offense and defense. Not only are they averaging 28.0 points per game, but they’re also keeping opponents under double digits.
According to ESPN’s FPI, Iowa has a 51.8 percent chance of defeating Wisconsin. Obviously, this isn’t exactly a jaw-dropping prediction, but it does show that Wisconsin is vulnerable entering this conference game.
If the Badgers are going to get back on the winning track, look for Jonathan Taylor to lead the charge.
Wisconsin and Iowa will kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET from Kinnick Stadium. The game will be on FOX.
