No. 20 Wisconsin (2-0) at Arizona St. (1-0), 10:30 p.m. (ESPN)

Line: Arizona St. by 5 ½.

Series record: Arizona St. 2-1.


After easy victories to open the season, both teams face their first real tests. The Badgers beat up Massachusetts and Tennessee Tech by a combined score of 93-0, the first time they've started a season with consecutive shutouts since 1958. The Sun Devils rolled over FCS school Sacramento State 55-0 in their opener.


Arizona State's speed vs. Wisconsin's power. The Sun Devils, like so many teams in the Pac-12, like to spread things out and play fast. The Badgers fit the traditional Big Ten mold perfectly, preferring to wear opponents down by running them over. Whichever side can establish its style of football wins.


Wisconsin: RB Corey Clement. Wisconsin had a trio of 100-yard rushers in both of its opening games and Clement led the way with 149 against Tennessee Tech. He ran for 101 yards against UMass and is one of six freshmen in FBS history to rush for over 100 yards in each of his first two games, first at Wisconsin.

Arizona St.: DT Will Sutton. The Sun Devils struggled to stop the run last season and have worked at being better this season. Sutton will be a huge part of whether they can slow the Badgers. An All-American last season, he bypassed a chance at the NFL to return to Tempe and is one of the most disruptive defensive players in college football.
