BIG TEN FOOTBALL:  Wisconsin Badgers 2008 Season Predictions

The biggest question surrounding the 2008 Wisconsin Badgers is who will start at quarterback, senior Allan Evridge or junior Dustin Scherer?  

If there's a silver lining to the lack of a quarterback solution, it's the fact the Badgers return all of their running backs, almost all of their offensive linemen and all-American tight end Travis Beckum. 

Wisconsin also boasts a talented, experienced defense.

Here are my predictions for the 2008 Wisconsin Badgers:

8/30     AKRON

The Zips can't keep up with the Badgers.

Prediction:  Win (44-10)

9/13     at FRESNO STATE

Coach Pat Hill and the Bulldogs aren't shying away from lofty expectations.  The Badgers better not overlook them.
