The Badgers brought a two-game winning streak into their matchup against Michigan last week; they left with a three-game streak. Wisconsin made easy work of Michigan and carried off a 35-14 win. RB Jonathan Taylor had a stellar game for the Badgers as he rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Taylor’s 72-yard touchdown rush in the first quarter.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats were the 29-19 winners over Michigan State when they last met October of last year. Last week? They had no such luck. The Wildcats have to be aching after a bruising 31-10 loss to Michigan State. The Wildcats were down by 24-3 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
Wisconsin’s victory lifted them to 3-0 while Northwestern’s defeat dropped them down to 1-2. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Wisconsin enters the game with only 2 touchdowns allowed, good for best in the nation. Less enviably, Northwestern is third worst in the nation in overall touchdowns, with only 5 on the season. So the Northwestern squad has its work cut out for it.
