The No. 23 Wisconsin Badgers welcome in unranked Illinois squad to Madison for an early Saturday contest.

Wisconsin (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) looks to wipe the sour taste out of its mouth after a rough 38-13 beatdown loss at Michigan last Saturday night. We will see who suits up in the defensive backfield for the Badgers with four contributing defensive backs currently questionable for the game.

Illinois (3-3, 1-2) also suffered a significant setback last weekend, falling to Purdue 46-7 in its own homecoming match-up.

Here is all the information you need for Saturday’s Big Ten West showdown, along with the B5Qrew’s predictions.
