Week 7 at Michigan

Sam Land

This game will be decided in the trenches. The Wisconsin offensive line may be the best in the country, but it will be meeting its match in the Wolverines’ front seven. If it struggles to contain Rashan Gary and co. and open holes for Jonathan Taylor, the Badgers are in serious trouble. This is going to be a fantastic game, and if it was taking place in Madison, I think the Badgers pull out the win. However, I have to give the edge to Michigan in the Big House.

This will be a nail-biter for the Badgers. Ultimately Michigan’s top tier defense will prove too much for the Wisconsin O, whose receiver core will not be enough to stretch the field for the running backs. Michigan’s offense could be much improved.

This game has been circled all off-season.  Despite beating Michigan last year, I believe the Badgers will have something to prove after an abysmal performance against the Wolverines at the Big House in 2016.  Michigan boasts one of the best defenses in the country, featuring a highly talented and physical front seven.  Despite a much-improved performance by Alex Hornibrook, we will see the Wisconsin defense struggle for the first time.  Shea Patterson will make enough plays against the young Badgers secondary and lead Michigan to victory.

In a highly contested battle at the Big House, Wisconsin pulls off an upset over the Wolverines, proving they deserve the national recognition they are receiving.

A difficult matchup against a team who doesn’t lose at home often. This one might come down to QB play and I have a feeling Patterson might expose the youth in the Badgers’ secondary. Bucky suffers its first loss of the season

I believe this is the toughest game of the season for Wisconsin. There’s no better defensive line on the schedule to match up with the Badgers’ offensive front. Playing this game on the road might be the difference. I expect it to come down to the wire, like last year, but the result to be different. Shea Patterson is the X-factor as Michigan squeaks out the win.
