College Football Week 7 Schedule: Big game at the Big House for Wisconsin-Michigan

New, comments

A big matchup in the Big Ten at the Big House is your top game of the day on Saturday.

Today, the Wisconsin Badgers travel East for one of their two biggest tests of this year’s Big Ten season. Paul Chryst’s squad faces two of the top three teams in the East Division of the conference this season, and tonight’s game at #12 Michigan sets up as the most challenging game to date.

Last year, the #5 Badgers defeated #19 Michigan 24-10 at Camp Randall Stadium in a slow, ugly slugfest that saw the two teams combine for 77 rushing attempts and 45 pass attempts.

In November, the Badgers will go to Penn State, but Michigan’s stellar defense will be at the forefront of Badger fans’ minds this week. Can Alex Hornirook and Jonathan Taylor do enough against that tough front to keep the Badgers unbeaten in conference play? Can the young secondary keep a mediocre Michigan offense (which is an improvement over last year) in check? Tune in tonight to find out.

That game is the premier matchup on today’s schedule, as the lone prime time game featuring a pair of ranked teams. However, get to ABC (or ESPN2, depending on where you live) for the mid-afternoon as well, as fans get a rare Pac-12 matchup in the middle of the day between top-20 Washington and Oregon.
