Week 2 vs New Mexico

Sam Land

This will be the first-ever meeting between the Badgers and the Lobos. That’s about the only thing that could make this game interesting. Even if this year’s team is at all improved from last season, it’s doubtful the Lobos will be able to mount much of a challenge to Wisconsin on either side of the ball. The Badgers win big for the second straight week.

An 11 a.m. start time could lead to a slow start from the Badgers, but I don’t expect much of a contest from the Lobos.  I believe Hornibrook and the passing game will have a lot of success against New Mexico.  Look for Zack Baun to have a breakout performance resulting in 3 sacks from the redshirt junior.  The secondary has a huge day as well causing two interceptions.  Badgers roll.

Wisconsin rolls in another non-conference game. The Lobos are no match for Jonathan Taylor and the Badgers.

Another downtrodden opponent enters the arena of Camp Randall in the sparkling September sun. Much like the week before, expect a heavy dose of Jonathan Taylor and a sterling completion percentage rate from Hornibrook. Badgers win and get a confidence boost.

The  Badgers get to feast on another opponent who’s no match for a College Football Playoff contender. There will be plenty of time for fans to get a look at the depth behind the established starters.
