Fast-paced BYU faces a potential speed bump in the Midwest.

No. 21 Wisconsin doesn't get pushed around that easily. Not at Camp Randall Stadium, and especially not in the red zone.

It's a tale of two tempos when the Cougars visit the Badgers on Saturday in a rare, high-profile nonconference matchup in November. Both teams are 6-2.

The teams feature two of the best running games in the country, and two of the best linebackers in the nation in BYU's Kyle Van Noy and Wisconsin's Chris Borland. The latter is expected to return from a hamstring injury.

The Cougars feature an up-tempo offense. Wisconsin running backs Melvin Gordon and James White can control the pace.
