No. 25 Wisconsin is on the road and going against an Illinois team that has a good quarterback.
Yet, the Badgers are favored by as many as 14 12 points. Finding someone to pick the Illini to win was nearly impossible (even from Illinois fans - look at the comments from the Champaign article).
Of course, Wisconsin is 0-2 in night games this season and have struggled defensively against good passers. Nevertheless, it's all Badgers, all the time in the picks.
Here's this week's predictions and make sure to join me Saturday night for a live blog of the game where I more than welcome your participation:
Our own Jesse Temple via his Know the Foe series: Wisconsin 31, Illinois 14
