  • The incredible discipline and consistency of Wisconsin, led by stellar inside linebackers Ryan Connelly and T.J. Edwards.
  • Freshman running back Jonathan Taylor being the latest in a long line of Badgers backs and the huge task for a great Ohio State defensive line going up against a dominant Wisconsin offensive line.
  • Whether quarterback Alex Hornibrook can lead Wisconsin from behind if Ohio State strikes early and often on Saturday.
  • The improvement of the Badgers’ pass protection.
  • Struggles in the University of Tennessee’s search for a football coach and how Volunteers fans might have brought some of those struggles on themselves.
