Big Ten Network
The Hawaii Warriors and Wisconsin Badgers square off Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.
The Hawaii Warriors look for a big road victory after a solid and quick 2-1 start. Max Wittek is completing 50 percent of his passes for 541 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions. Wittek is coming off a game in which he completed 70.8 percent. Marcus Kemp and Devan Stubblefield have combined for more than 340 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Dylan Collie has six receptions. The Hawaii Warriors ground game is averaging 124.3 yards per contest, and Paul Harris leads the way with 261 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Hawaii is allowing 28.3 points and 381 yards per game. Marrell Jackson leads the Warriors with 24 tackles, Makani Kema-Kaleiwahea has 1.5 sacks and Julian Gener has an interception. Quinton Pedroza and Trayvon Henderson are questionable with injuries.
The Wisconsin Badgers look to add to their current two-game winning streak. Joel Stave is completing 67.4 percent of his passes for 666 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. Stave has thrown a touchdown in four straight games. Alex Erickson and Robert Wheelwright have combined for 380 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Austin Traylor has six receptions. The Wisconsin Badgers ground game is averaging 142.3 yards per contest, and Dare Ogunbowale leads the way with 196 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Wisconsin is allowing 12.7 points and 304.7 yards per game. Joe Schobert leads the Badgers with 25 tackles, Vince Biegel has two sacks and Leo Musso has two interceptions. Beau Benzschawel, Corey Clement and Troy Fumagalli are questionable with injuries.
The Rainbow Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in September and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 non-conference games. The Badgers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
Wisconsin hasn't exactly been the team that's going to blow out lower skilled teams on a regular basis, as we saw last week against Troy. Also, Hawaii has a former USC quarterback who can really throw the football and put points on the board. I'm just not confident in the Badgers covering huge chalk. I'll take the points here.
