Rutgers (6-8, 0-1 Big Ten) has yet to win a road game since becoming a member of the Big Ten and the Badgers (8-6, 0-1) would prefer its first win one not come at their expense. Especially since the Scarlet Knights upset Wisconsin's best team ever last season, so UW will be seeking its first conference win against them.
