The Virtual Wisconsin Badgers are 2-0 on the young season and are coming off of a bye week where they were, hopefully, working on a gameplan that will allow them to score more than zero points in the first half…like they did against Central Michigan.
The rest of the B1G had an up and down Week 2 before the Badgers got the chance to hang out on the couch. The Michigan Wolverines got a big rivalry win over Notre Dame before they welcome UW to The Big House in a couple of weeks. Northwestern and Rutgers continued to be…terrible. Penn State beat Eastern Michigan (who the Badgers will play after Michigan), which is the only game I couldn’t fit in the picture.
During Week 3, Iowa lost Iowa State and RUTGERS GOT A WIN AGAINST EASTERN MICHIGAN! Holy crap, EMU must be bad. Also, Notre Dame lost their second straight game to a B1G foe.
The Heisman watch is starting to shape up into a more realistic list after the preseason list contained offensive linemen and backup players. It’s pretty impressive that there are four B1G running backs on the list, although Texas A&M’s backup QB is still holding onto that top spot.
The Badgers moved up to No. 14 after the bye week after a number of teams were upset in Week 3. You really hate to see that Alabama has started off the season 0-2. If Wisconsin can go on the road and beat Michigan they’ll probably move into the top-10!
No. 4 Ohio State is travelling to Lincoln to plan No. 18 Nebraska as well this week for the second of two titanic early season B1G matchups. Will No. 1 Clemson play another game this season or just try and coast to the national title game on the heels of being 1-0? I guess we’ll see!
