Saturday afternoon, Wisconsin and Michigan will get together for one of the most important games on the Big Ten schedule. Whichever team loses the game could be eliminated from College Football Playoff contention.

We've heard predictions for the contest from dozens of analysts, but Saturday, we got an interesting one from a former player. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who played for Wisconsin, has made an official score prediction.

Wilson told Brady Quinn on FOX that he's taking the Badgers by a score of 24-17. He likes his former school to score a big home win over Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.

Wilson played three seasons at NC State before trying his hand at baseball with the Colorado Rockies organization. He later returned to college football and starred at Wisconsin for his final season.

While Wilson finished his career at Wisconsin, he openly roots for both programs.

Wilson, after being taken in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, became Seattle's starting quarterback during his rookie season. He's been one of the best signal-callers in the league since.

Michigan and Wisconsin will kick off at Noon ET on FOX.
