Week 11- BYU vs. Wisconsin
BYU (6-2) will take on the #24 Wisconsin Badgers (6-2, 4-1 Big 10) this Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. A familiar foe will be awaiting their arrival in Badger coach Gary Anderson. Anderson is in his first season as head coach at Wisconsin after an impressive career at the University of Utah and Utah State. We are all well aware that these two teams want to play completely different styles:
So aside from who is the pace-car for the game, here are a few things to watch for that could have a major influence on the outcome of the game.
What to Watch for:
Penalties: BYU is #117 in penalties (out of 123) and #111 in penalty yards. Translation: BYU has been really sloppy this season, like really. The offensive line has been a big issue and false starts, especially in the red zone, have been drive killers. BYU cannot afford to give a good team any freebies. I am hoping that this was a point of emphasis in the bye week a...
BEST OF MAXIM
MADISON, Wis. -- Vince Biegel says he will approach this week's game like it is any other on Wisconsin's football schedule. And as preparation goes, that part is probably true. In reality, however, Biegel recognizes the circumstances surrounding the game are unlike any he has ever played.
"I've kind of been looking forward to this game all year," said Biegel...

It isn't often Wisconsin plays a nonconference game this late in the season - the last time the Badgers did so was Nov. 22, 2008 when they hosted Cal Poly - which turned out to be a tougher game than expected. (Wisconsin also played at Hawaii in 2007.)
The Cougars come into Camp Randall with a good record and having played a decent schedule. Will this one be tougher than that...
(Eds: Adds details, quotes. Will stand.With AP Photos.) By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer One of the top linebackers in the country is sidelined. The best running back in the Big Ten is having a subpar day. The leading receiver leaves with an injury.

For all the big tackles made by linebacker Chris Borland and highlight...
The two top dogs in the Big Ten have the week off, but there is still a solid slate of games in the conference that will have postseason implications.
Let’s see how our writers are picking the games:
Penn State at Minnesota
Ryan Osbahr: The Gophers have a strong enough running game to carve up a dismal Penn State defense. PSU does not play well on the road, I’m going Minnesota...

Heading into this season Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was someone who showed flashes, but lacked consistent production. It was easy to see that he had tremendous potential and with the right workload he could quickly gain draft-related hype...
Josh Gasser and Duje Dukan watched from the bench a season ago as Wisconsin struggled to find consistency from the 3-point and free throw line. In the 2013-14 season opener, both players made those two areas a strength, leading the 20th-ranked Badgers to an 86-75 win over St. John's at the Sanford Pentagon.
Nathan Veloz got a chance to see Iowa last weekend as he watched the Hawkeyes take his home-state Wisconsin Badgers. The Class of 2015 lineman was amazed by the atmosphere at Kinnick Stadium and talked about the visit with Hawkeye Insider.
Josh Gasser scored 19 points to lead five players in double figures, as No.20 Wisconsin won its 12th straight season opener, delivering an impressed 86-75 victory over St. John's in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Although he's playing his third position in four seasons at Wisconsin, junior nose tackle Warren Herring is starting to find his footing, entering this weekend's nonconference game against BYU as the team's leader in sacks and tackles for loss.
