The question is whether Saturday night's game between the two 4-0 teams in Madison, Wisconsin., can live up to the hype.
The Wisconsin Badgers have burst out of the gates on the college football betting board to four straight victories over non-conference opponents and a combined score of 194-34 - htat's an average winning margin of 40 points!. Powered by transfer quarterback Russell Wilson, Wisconsin will look to carry over the momentum into a Week 5 home matchup with the #8-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The #8 Huskers have been less impressive. They have won by an average
of three touchdowns, but the defense has looked vulnerable and
quarterback Taylor Martinez has been up and down. Still 4-0 is 4-0, and every win has been comfortable in the end.
