Wisconsin vs. Michigan State: 10 Keys to Watch When Big Ten Heavyweights Clash

Two of the Big Ten's best teams are set to do battle Saturday night at 8 p.m.

Wisconsin and Michigan State are both 2-0 in the conference, boasting two of the country's best defensive units. Outside of that, most would agree that Wisconsin has the edge.

Offensively, there isn't even a comparison between the two teams.

The Badgers are ranked eighth in total offense, while the Spartans are 66th.

What many forget is that Wisconsin's last conference loss came to this very team, on the road.

The Badger's last trip to East Lansing ended in a 34-24 loss on Oct. 2, 2010, and the team is unbeaten in nine conference games since. In fact, Wisconsin is on a three-game slide at Spartan Stadium since a win there in October 2002.

Michigan State knows how to win, and Wisconsin hasn't been tested until now.

There are several things you should watch for on Saturday night. Here are my top 10.
