    Winner of this game gets the right to lose to Ohio State next week.

    These two teams have had great seasons and PJ Fleck should get consideration for coach of the year with what's he's done with the Golden Gophers this year. However, a key stat leading into this game is the fact that the Golden Gophers are the fourth-worst team in the conference on third-down defense. The inaility to get off the field has been a problem for nearly every team that has lined up to face the Badgers. I can’t envision Minnesota coming out on top when it’s been a problem for them all season.

    There isn't a team in the country that dominates time of possession like Wisconsin. That's because they have Jonathan Taylor at RB. He will eat up yards on the ground, while Coan sticks to the easy throws to avoid costly turnovers. Minnesota's defense hasn't been great at getting pressure on QBs this year as well so Coan should have plenty of time to sit back and pick apart the secondary. Expect Taylor to dominate this game, especially when they need short yardage conversions. That's what Wisconsin does, they keep the chains moving and keep other teams offenses on the sideline. 

    Wisconsin’s defense has been amazing this year and is being led by Jim Leonard, former NFL great, and he will hold up its end in shutting down Minnesota’s rushing attack and forcing Morgan to do too much. It will ultimately prove disastrous for the Golden have his group ready to defend the Gophers passing game.

    This will be a great game but one that Wisconsin is built to win. They'll win time of possession and their defense will prove to be too tough for the Golden Gophers. It will be a low scoring game but when it's all said and done, Wisconsin will be on their way to the Big Ten Championship game.
