Wisconsin has struggled against triple-option offenses in the past, most recently against Cal Poly last season. Wofford runs the football 80 percent of the time and uses a number of unique formations to throw the defenses off. Still, they leave very little protection on their offensive line and UW has a renewed defensive line with the emergence of O'Brien Schofield (who is playing like an All-Big Ten first teamer) and J.J. Watt, who should be fully recovered from the flu. Second team ends Brendan Kelly and Louis Nzegwu will be back and healthy as well. Linebackers Blake Sorensen and Mike Taylor have been impressive thus far and as long as they stay disciplined, Wofford will struggle the move the ball without running back Eric Breitenstein who suffered an injury last week.
Offensively, it's time for the running backs to have a big day. Wisconsin should put up over 250 rushing yards and will probably top 300. The number one goal should be to avoid any major injuries.
