GAME THREAD: Wisconsin vs. Penn State

New, 711 comments

We have all been waiting a long time for this. IT’S FINALLY TIME TO KICKOFF THE 2021 FOOTBALL SEASON LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 21 Michigan at Wisconsin editors note: a stitched panoramic photo

The No. 12 Wisconsin Badgers open their 133rd season of college football in awesome fashion, hosting the No. 19 Penn State Nittany Lions at Camp Randall Stadium live at 11 a.m. CT on FOX. Both the Badgers and the Nittany Lions had disappointing 2020 seasons and will be looking to make an early statement in 2021 and everyone is excited.

Wisconsin has struggled with Penn State over the past decade, but the two teams haven’t played since 2018 and haven’t played in Madison since 2013 so most of the key players today have no frame of reference on the series history.

This should be a great game between two evenly matched teams who have a lot to prove. A win by either team will set them up for a potentially great season. Wisconsin could be favored in every regular season game they play this year and if PSU wins, they have the high potential to be 7-0 heading into their showdown with Ohio State at the end of October.

So, a lot riding on this game!


Here are the staff predictions for the game:

Tyler: 27-23, Wisconsin

Owen: 27-17, Wisconsin

J.J.: 27-24, Wisconsin

Neal: 24-17, Wisconsin

Belz: 31-20, didn’t specify a winner which is a veteran move

Rock: 30-18, Wisconsin

Ryan: 34-10, Wisconsin

Bremen: 29-18 (lmao, wut?), Wisconsin

Jake: 24-13, Wisconsin

Drew: 28-20, Wisconsin


Penn State doesn’t release a depth chart like a bunch of cowards, but here is Wisconsin’s two deep.

Unfortunately there has been some “late breaking personnel news” for the Badgers. Here is the injury report in full and here is our breaking news report on Leo Chenal missing the game due to COVID.
