Every Thursday throughout the football season we'll be giving you the "5 Things We're Watching For" against our opponents, they can very from matchups to individual players, you name it, it's fair game. So, now that you know the score - it's time to give you the things we're watching for against Northern Iowa.
1) Danny O'Brien:
This should be an obvious choice. It's all of our's first experience seeing him in a real game in a Badger uniform. Expecting him to be Russell Wilson is crazy, but expecting him to be at least 1/2 as good isn't an unrealistic expectation. Getting off on the right foot and showing the fans he can command the offense will be key against Northern Iowa.
2) New Offensive Wrinkles?
Will Wisconsin try some new things we haven't seen before offensively? There's been hinting all camp long that there will be, but could the Badgers save them for bigger games down the road or will this be the environment to allow them to experiment.
