The Badger of Honor contributors have lots of thoughts on the upcoming Wisconsin Football season. Here they are in one convenient place.

Wisconsin football is on the brink of greatness. This year has higher expectations than ever before and here at Badger of Honor, we couldn’t be more excited to cover the season. Some of the contributors you’ve read throughout the summer have submitted their thoughts on the schedule.

Week 1 vs Western Kentucky

Sam Land

Camp Randall is going to be absolutely electric for this Friday night matchup to open the season. The huge talent gap between these squads and Wisconsin’s home field advantage will be far too much for Western Kentucky to overcome.

Wisconsin 48 –  Western Kentucky 10

Steven Tondi

The offense proves its dominance early with a couple of quick scores from Hornibrook and Taylor.  The defense gives up a couple points early but settles in by the second quarter.  Hornibrook throws for 3 touchdowns while Taylor runs for 150 yards before handing it over to the reserves for the majority of the second half.  The Badgers stay in control and cruise to a satisfying victory in the opener.

Wisconsin 56 – Western Kentucky 17

Christian Borman

Western Kentucky loses its starting quarterback and top two receiving options from last year. Wisconsin flexes its muscles with a high-powered offense in week one.

Wisconsin 59 – Western Kentucky 17

Taylor Laabs

After a sluggish first half in last year’s night opener, expect Paul Chryst and crew to emphasize a fast start against the overmatched Hilltoppers. Badgers cruise.

Wisconsin 63 – Western Kentucky 7

Tanner Nestle

This game will be over by halftime. The atmosphere of a night game at Camp Randall, combined with the talent on offense will be too much for Western Kentucky. The Badgers are leaning on offense more so the starts shouldn’t be as slow.
