Dynamic opponents Wisconsin will face in 2014: Bowling Green WR Ronnie Moore

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Bowling Green's explosive sophomore receiver begins our list of the most dangerous players Wisconsin will face in 2014.

With the official start to the college football season just under two months away, there's no better time to get your mind oriented toward the gridiron. To kickstart this discussion, I'll be rolling out weekly top-five lists for the next few weeks. First up are the most dynamic players UW will face this season.

No. 5: WR Ronnie Moore, Bowling Green

5'9, 161 lbs.
Sophomore
2013: 28 REC, 547 YDS, 7 TD / 14 ATT, 138 YDS

Wisconsin's cornerbacks may be much improved from a season ago with almost everyone returning, but they will have their hands full Sept. 20 when Bowling Green travels to Madison. Moore, a true sophomore, turned some heads last year as a freshman, recording 28 receptions for 547 yards and a team-leading seven touchdowns. The 5'9 speedster also had an average of 9.9 yards per carry on the ground.

Altogether, Moore had an up-and-down first season, but he closed his first year in college football on a strong note. In the Nov. 23 matchup against Eastern Michigan, the wide receiver had 161 yards receiving with three touchdowns. Two weeks later, he added 145 yards receiving with one score. Not to mention, Moore also made his presence known on special teams, recording a 49-yard punt return against Miami (Ohio) Nov. 5.

There's a new coaching staff at Bowling Green, but the staff would be foolish not to use Moore to the fullest extent against the Badgers. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda will certainly make him an extra point of emphasis during film session leading up to the game, and it'll be a good test for the young talent off the edges on the defensive line to stay home when he's making pre-snap movements. I would anticipate a coverage mix of Sojourn Shelton and Michael Caputo, with the former manning him on the outside and the latter taking care of Moore in the slot.
