Wisconsin Football News | Wisconsin vs Washington State Prediction
The Wisconsin Badgers had a lot of difficulties against Buffalo in Week 1 and it seemed no one position group was at fault. Quarterback Tanner Mordecai looked nervous and made bad decisions, receivers were dropping easy passes, and the defense couldn’t tackle or put pressure on the quarterback.
For as bad as they looked at times, this team should be amped up for this game as they still deal with the sting of their loss last year. Head coach Luke Fickell made it very clear that there was plenty of work to do, and history tells us he’ll have the Badgers ready.
Washington State Football News | Wisconsin vs Washington State Prediction
Washington State comes into this game after a dominant showing against Colorado State, winning 50-24. While the game became closer at the end, the Cougars held a 36-3 lead in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Cameron Ward is a dual-threat who can make defenses pay if they let him escape the pocket. Former Badger Nakia Watson still runs the rock for Washington State, although they would much rather air it out on offense.
This is the Cougars’ first true test as they have a new offensive and defensive coordinator. Much like the Badgers, they also have trouble getting pressure from their interior defensive line. They did a great job stopping the run last year, but can they stop the Badgers’ new offensive scheme?
