The Wisconsin Badgers are fresh off a 35-17 loss to Alabama. Joel Stave is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 228 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Stave has three touchdowns and seven picks in his last three games. Alex Erickson and Dare Ogunbowale have combined for more than 100 receiving yards and one touchdown while Robert Wheelwright has a touchdown reception.

Joe Schobert leads the Badgers with 13 tackles, Alec James has a sack and D'Cota Dixon has one pass deflection. Leon Jacobs, Corey Clement and Michael Caputo are questionable with injuries.
The Redhawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-9-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Badgers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. MAC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Wisconsin showed that it can once again be a force in the Big Ten after hanging around with Alabama for about a half. Meanwhile, Miami Ohio didn't exactly blow the doors off a team from the Big South and has won just twice in its last seven games. I hate big chalk, but this game simply could get ugly.
