Hmm. Wisconsin finished fourth in the Big 10, and their biggest win is against 8-4 Michigan, while Tennessee's best win is over 10-2 Georgia. Other than that, though, the resumes look remarkably similar. Tennessee is 9-4, but one of the Vols' losses is in the SEC Championship game to one of the top two teams in the nation. Wisconsin is 9-3, but one of their losses is to the other of the top two teams in the nation.

Wiscellaneous stuff:

  • Uh-Oh Stat: Wisconsin's rush versus Tennessee's rushing defense.
  • Last year, the Badgers beat Arkansas, who had just lost the SEC Championship to Florida. Who was on their way to play for a national championship. Hmm. Consider that an uh-oh, as well.
  • Coached by EDSBS's 2006 Man of the Year Nominee, Bret Bielema.
  • MGoBlog's pre-season preview and 's in-season preview.
