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:
The Zips can't keep up with the Badgers.
Prediction: Win (44-10)
A practice game before traveling to the West Coast.
Prediction: Win (48-13)
