Badgers Face Tough Test Tonight

 

HOUSTON, TEXAS (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The task facing the Wisconsin Badgers in tonight’s season opener is a huge one.  They will face one of the powerhouse teams from the nation’s strongest conference in the N-R-G Stadium in Houston. 

The L-S-U Tigers are a perennial contender under coach Les Miles, including a national championship just a few years ago.  The Tigers bring a strong running game into the contest to test a Badger defense with eight new starters.  Initial glances would suggest Wisconsin’s defense could sneak up closer to the line of scrimmage after the graduation of a three-thousand-yard passenger and two receivers who caught more than one-thousand yards on their catches last season. 

The S-E-C has won 44-of-74 games against the Big Ten over the last 20 seasons, counting bowl games.
