    Game Preview
    Wisconsin vs Northwestern

    With a possible Big Ten Championship on the horizon, the Badgers get a tired Northwestern team in Madison on Saturday on Senior Day. The only question is whether Wisconsin can be focused with the emotional senior day and the fact they will be looking to put a hurting on Northwestern to stay high in poll voter’s minds. I think they can.
    Wisconsin has been focused all year. They don’t turn the ball over and commit few penalties. A sign of a team that keeps its focus. Why not this week with so much on the line.

    When Wisconsin has the ball:
    The Northwestern defense gave up over 500 yards on the ground to Illinois last week. The Wildcat defense who must be bruised and tired from that beating now travel to Madison to play the most physical team in the country. Expect a continuation of the Illinois game with the seniors being pulled one at a time to the cheers of the crowd in the second half.
    When Northwestern has the ball:
    Without the miracle man Persa who is out for the season, the Wildcat offense is more one dimensional. They are a passing team only. Wisconsin possesses some aggressive corners and JJ Watt coming off the edge. Without the fear of the scramble or a running game, the Badgers will be pinning their ears back and coming after the backup QB Watkins. Expect many 3 and outs.

    Wisconsin biggest threat this week will be a win by Michigan because they should have no problem with Northwestern.
