The Michigan State Spartans come into this matchup with a 4-2 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Ohio State Buckeyes, 34-10. QB Brian Lewerke struggled to get much going through the air for Michigan State as he connected on 20 of his 38 pass attempts for 218 yards, 1 TD, and 1 interception. Senior WR Darrell Stewart Jr. was the top target for Lewerke and the Spartans as he hauled in 6 catches for 68 yards and a TD.

Junior CB Josiah Scott led the way for the Michigan State defense with 12 tackles and an interception. Senior LB Joe Bachie was able to get into the Ohio State backfield a handful of times as he racked up 11 tackles, 3 TFL, and 2 sacks.

The Wisconsin Badgers come into this matchup with a 5-0 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent home game against the Kent State Golden Flashes, 48-0. QB Jack Coan had an efficient game through the air for Wisconsin as he connected on 12 of his 15 pass attempts for 134 yards and 2 TDs.

The Wisconsin Badgers were very good on the defensive side of the ball against the Kent State Golden Flashes as they held them scoreless and to a total of 124 yards of offense. Senior LB Chris Orr led the way for the Wisconsin defense with 5 tackles, 2 TFL, and 2 sacks. Senior LB Zack Baun was able to get into the Kent State backfield a handful of times as he tallied 3 sacks and 3 TFL while Jack Sanborn pitched in 2 sacks and TFL.

The Wisconsin Badgers have been one of the best teams in the nation this season, and a huge reason for their success has been their star RB in Jonathan Taylor who has run for 745 yards and 12 TDs through 5 games. The Michigan State Spartans have struggled on the offensive side of the ball this season as they currently rank 75th in points scored, and that could be problematic against the Badgers as they currently have the top-ranked defense in college football. The Wisconsin Badgers will control the game with their ground attack, but they have a capable QB in Jack Coan who could make plays when it matters most. The Badgers should win by double-digits at home against a Michigan State team who has struggled as of recent. Final Score Prediction, Wisconsin Badgers win and cover ATS 24-10.
