As is so often the case with Wisconsin football games, running the football will be a big key.
Wisconsin's averaging 250 yards per game on the ground. If they can get close to that on Saturday, it will bode well for the Badgers as they face a tough opponent in Michigan State.
The Spartans counter with a passing attack that goes for 260 yards per contest, a 4-2 record, and a 2-1 mark in Big Ten play. While the Badgers have already faced two tough Big Ten opponents, this will be the first time they see an offense that is capable of throwing the ball well consistently.
