Wisconsin likes to run the ball with a massive OL and make any RB that is fortunate enough to run through their gaping lanes a god in Madison. This years team will be no different with a stout defense as usual to match it. The aspect of Wisconsin's offense that can push them to CFB playoffs is Alex Hornibrook in the passing game. He is coming off of a dazzling performance in the Orange Bowl against the turnover chain gang in what was a home game for Thug U in Miami. His 4 TDs were instrumental in Badger's come back win. Looks like he carried that success over to the off-season after winning the Manning College QB Passing Competition! If he can cut down his INTs sky is the limit. 12 Starters with a lot of depth!
