NCAA Football: Rutgers at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

A pair of three-loss teams collide in Happy Valley on Saturday when the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in some Big Ten cross-divisional action.

Last weekend, Wisconsin (6–3, 4–2 Big Ten) pulled away from Rutgers in a 31–17 win thanks to a big third quarter where its offense ran 13 consecutive running plays over the course of two drives for 163 yards and two touchdowns. Starting quarterback Alex Hornibrook was listed as questionable on Thursday’s updated injury report, so all eyes will be on sophomore Jack Coan to see if he receives his second start of the season.

As UW was trounced in the Big House earlier this season, Penn State (6–3, 3–3) fell hard to Michigan during a 42–7 loss in Ann Arbor last weekend. The Nittany Lions lead the conference in sacks per game, but how starting quarterback Trace McSorley plays will be key for their offense.
