Strengths: What is Wisconsin not good at? The Badgers are ranked 1st in scoring, with 50.2 points per game, seventh in rushing, with 257.5 yards per game, and 3rd in scoring defense, with a 9.7 ppg.
Senior quarterback Russell Wilson leads the NCAA with a 210.9 passing rating. He has 1,557 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception.
Junior running back Montee Ball has been a star, having 653 yards on 107 carries a 6.1 yard average and 16 scores. He is second in touchdowns by a running back.
The three-headed-monster of senior Nick Toon, and sophomores Jard Abberderis and Jacob Pedersen at wide receiver have combined for 66 catches for 1,077 yards and 13 touchdowns.
On defense, some standouts include junior linebacker Mike Taylor, with 49 tackles, a sack and interception, senior safety Aaron Henry, with 19 tackles and two interceptions and senior defensive back Antonio Fenelus, with 15 tackles, two interceptions.
Areas of Improvement: The Badgers are a solid team throughout, but they could improve on their aerial attack—31st at 265.7 ypg. Wisconsin also has a young linebacking corps behind the starters. If there is a blowout, some of these freshmen might see some action.
BCS Ranking: The ranking is a bit low at No. 6. It's true the only quality win Wisconsin has is against Nebraska, the Badgers have annihilated opponents, wining every game by 31 points or more. Wisconsin could gain points in the rankings with wins over nationally ranked Illinois, Michigan State and Penn State.
