With the running game being a focal point of both team's offenses, the play of the offense line could determine the outcome of the game.
Wisconsin's offensive line has played well this season, and like USC's offensive line, Wisconsin hasn't allowed many tackles for loss (it is tied for 19th with 59 total tackles and USC ranks 14th). The Badgers are ranked 55th in sacks, though, and they have allowed 23 on the year.
Although the Oregon offensive line doesn't have any superstars, they have done incredibly well this season, too.
Oregon has similar statistics to Wisconsin but in reverse. Oregon is tied for 48th in tackles for loss allowed with 71 total tackles, but it is ranked 11th in sacks allowed with 13. However, Oregon has a lot of quick developing plays, which can hide pass blocking deficiencies.
Largely because of the massive size of the Wisconsin offensive linemen, the edge goes to the Badgers. Wisconsin will use the big men up front to combat the speed of the Oregon defense. It will be a matchup of speed versus power, but Oregon's offensive line will be able to hold its own as well.
Wisconsin's defensive line doesn't have any real stars either, so Oregon's offensive line should be able to continue opening up holes for LaMichael James like it has done all season.
