Well-Rested Wolverines and Badgers Square Off

Jason BarczyCorrespondent ISeptember 26, 2008

I had a nice long preview and prediction wrote on here but Bleacher Report was having problems right when I was ready to publish it and erased everything I had written. So this is going to be nice and short.

First off, congrats to Oregon State for beating top-ranked USC last night. It just goes to show the 35-3 win over Ohio State was not a reflection of how good USC is but rather how bad Ohio State is.

No. 3 Wisconsin (3-0) at Michigan (1-2)

3:30 EDT Saturday at Michigan Stadium

Line: Wisconsin by 6

What I had written can basically be summed up like this, if Michigan can convert third downs better than what they have been (24 percent through three games) and keep P.J. Hill from dominating, they'll have a chance.

I don't think they'll be able to and will lose. Hill has some pent-up frustration when it comes to playing the Wolverines (68 yards in two career games versus Michigan) and is looking forward to beating them down.

This is a much tougher opponent than any Michigan has seen thus far and their inexperience will show big time.
