Badgers ready for big boys now


Madison, WISCONSIN (WXOW,WKOW)  The preseason is over for the Badgers, figuratively speaking.

After gobbling up a pair of cupcakes to open the season, they will travel to Arizona State this Saturday.

Wisconsin is ranked.

But Arizona State finished just out of the latest top 25 poll.

Life on the road can be difficult, which is why the Badgers are actually five-point underdogs in this contest.

After rolling through their first two opponents by a score of 93-0, the Badgers expect to face adversity.

"We got a bunch of younger players that they can rely on more experienced players. Guys that have been through it, road games , night games. They can pass on how to handle your business," said linebacker Chris Borland.

"They expect us to play great. That's what our seniors expect. We got to play great because we want to send them out right," said running back Melvin Gordon.

It will be a 9:30 kickoff in Tempe, AZ Saturday night.
