Coming off a 70-3 trouncing of Austin Peay, the Badgers find themselves ready to start their Big Ten schedule with a matchup agaisnt undefeated [4-0] Michigan State.
Coach Bret Bielema stated Monday that the Badgers are as healthy as they've been since the start of camp. He expects receiver Nick Toon (turf toe) back, and he's optimistic receiver David Gilreath (concussion) will be cleared to play.
John Clay and company handled Austin Peay with ease, but with a surprisingly fast and consistent offense of Michigan State ready to do battle, the Badgers might have a bit of a surprise lurking in East Lansing.
A pivitol game within the Big Ten, the Badgers must look for answers to the problems presented by the Spartan offense, as the Red and White look for a great start to the Big Ten schedule.
This game by no means is a gimme for either team, but rather a true test of skill and consistency.
Make no mistake -- this Spartans team is poised and ready to give Bret Bilema's crew a run for their money.
