    Indiana looks to regroup in Madison after near miss

  • Wisconsin vs Indiana

    Game Preview

    Indiana enters after giving a huge effort only to have a dropped pass by Belcher in the end zone cost them a game against Iowa. Now they have to travel to play the most physical team on their schedule. I hope their chin straps are on good.

    When Wisconsin has the ball:
    Center Peter Konz is doubtful and will most likely miss this game due to an ankle injury. Backup Bill Nady who filled in admirably in the second half against Iowa should fill in. RB James White is back but John Clay is out. That still leaves two good explosive backs, Ball and White, to do their damage against an Indiana team that gives up 5.19 yards a carry. Playing at home, don’t expect the Wisconsin offensive line to come out sluggish like last week. The Badgers should have no problem putting up points.

    When Indiana has the ball:
    Indiana’s offensive line has struggled in pass protection this year, although they did a better job against the excellent line of Iowa. However, now they are on the road in Madison, a loud stadium, and must be able to block JJ Watt. Normally Indiana would go to a quick passing game with its receivers. Unfortunately for Indiana, Wisconsin’s defensive backs are physical and can play bump and run making it harder for the short passing attack. Indiana should find the sledding very rough against Wisconsin this week.
