While it's difficult to read too much into a 70-3 win over an FCS opponent, it's hard for pretty much anyone associated with Wisconsin football not to feel good about Saturday's game against Austin Peay.
With Wisconsin's three uninspiring wins to open the year, many began to openly question whether the Badgers were really as good as everyone was predicting. As their last non-conference opponent, Austin Peay was supposed to be the game where Wisconsin showed what it could really do to work out the kinks in their offense, defense and special teams before kicking off the Big Ten schedule.
Well, you could say, for the most part, those kinks were worked out.
Again, a dominating performance against an FCS school should be taken with a grain of salt. But, boy, "domination" is the only way to describe the Badgers' victory on Saturday afternoon.
Here are my grades.
