Exactly one year and one day after Wisconsin topped Oklahoma in the Bahamas, the Badgers travel to face a Sooner squad returning almost all its key players from a 24-11 team. This is the first game of a high-caliber home-and-home series that will see Oklahoma come to Kohl Center in 2016-17. Both teams have been playing some fresh faces early in the season and figure to be even better as the season wears on.

Projected Starting Lineups

Oklahoma Pos. Wisconsin
Khadeem Lattin, So. F Ethan Happ, Fr.
