Wisconsin Football: 3 Keys to the Game vs. Michigan State

They meet again. 

If the Big Ten was looking for a new powder-keg rivalry, they found it in the Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan State Spartans of the last few years. If Michigan-Ohio State is a prize fight in Madison Square Garden, consider this a bareknuckle brawl in the building's back alley.

Neither team wins pretty and they come prepared to get bruised in the process. 

While Sparty is trying to find his footing in a year without perennial all-everything quarterback Kirk Cousins, Wisconsin is just regaining its identity as a power running, play-action passing team.

Both squads feature fearsome defenses, inconsistent kickers and—sometimes—hapless receivers. Will the Badgers put a cherry on top of their Hail Mary revenge tour? Will Michigan State regain some momentum? 

If this matchup is like any in the past two seasons, keep the game on until the last second to find out.
