Why Wisconsin’s Badgers could be the most improved team in the Big Ten this season

By Chris JansonThe Wisconsin Badgers are just one win away from becoming the second team in program history to clinch a bowl berth and a berth in the FBS Playoffs.

While they were knocked out of the Big 12 title game by Baylor, the Badgers still have the opportunity to secure a spot in the College Football Playoff and the national championship game if they don’t make a lot of mistakes during the regular season.

The Badgers also have a few big names on their roster and a strong program in place to help their defense.

Wisconsin was able to win the Big Eight in 2019, but their offense didn’t fare as well.

Wisconsin’s defense ranked sixth nationally in points allowed (22.5) and sixth in yards allowed (5,074) during the 2019 season.

The Badgers were ranked 10th in the country in rushing defense (4.7 yards per carry) and ninth in scoring defense (24.5 points per game).

Wisconsin also had a number of returning starters from last season’s team that should help them with the run defense.

The Wisconsin defense finished third in the conference in rushing yards allowed per game (5.3) and third in total defense (229.9 yards per game) and was No. 3 in points scored allowed per contest (23.2).

Wisconsin was ranked No. 4 in the nation in rushing offense and No. 8 in scoring offense.

The biggest problem for the Badger defense is that it’s not very good.

The Wisconsin defense allowed 7.8 yards per rush last season, which ranked third in Big Ten Conference.

The average team allowed 6.1 yards per run and the Badges allowed 5.4 yards per rushing attempt.

This season the Badgies will likely be more balanced and less successful on the ground and could struggle to stop the run.

The defense will also be led by the returning star defensive tackle and third-team All-Big Ten pick, De’Andre Harris.

The 2017 Badgers’ defense ranked No the nation’s top 25 in run defense and No the top 30 in passing defense.

The 2017 Wisconsin defense ranked the No. 1 ranked pass defense in the SEC.

The 2018 Badgers ranked fourth in the league in total offense (2,096.2 yards per contest), No. 5 in scoring (30.8 points per contest) and No 12 in total yards allowed.

The 2018 Badgys were also No. 10 in scoring efficiency.

The team also had the No 10 ranked defense in scoring in the entire country.

The Big Ten’s No. 15 defense ranked fourth nationally in total offensive yards allowed, No. 14 in scoring, No 21 in total rushing defense and led the conference.

The Big Ten had some issues for the first half of the season.

Wisconsin only allowed three touchdowns in the first three games and only five total points in the third quarter.

The Huskies offense finished No. 7 nationally in scoring and No 11 in rushing.

Wisconsin’s defense was ranked third nationally in the Pac-12 and No 6 in the ACC.

Wisconsin finished No 2 in the MAC East in total points allowed per offensive play (10.2) and tied for the top ranked offense in the division.

The Wolverines offense was No 1 in the Midwest in scoring scoring efficiency, No 2 nationally in passing efficiency and No 3 in rushing efficiency.

The Huskies defense has a lot to play for in the 2019 campaign, especially with a number other returning starters including four-star offensive lineman and two-time Big Ten All-American defensive end Shaq Williams.

Williams was a first-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Williams had a breakout season with the Huskies last year, recording 53 tackles, five sacks, three forced fumbles and a forced fumble recovery against Nebraska.

Williams is a physical force in the run game who can rush the passer, but he’s also a physical blocker.

Williams could be a big factor in the Badgs defense if he can develop a better pass rush.

He played a lot on special teams in his senior season, recording 10 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception against Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has a good chance to compete for a bowl game in 2019.

Wisconsin has a chance to win it all and get to the College Bowl Championship Game, where the Wisconsin Badger would have to play in a game against an undefeated team.

The game between the two teams in the title game would be a huge test for the Wisconsin defense.

Wisconsin won the Big 10 South division last season and could be looking to do the same in 2019 if they can win out in the regular-season and the Big East Championship game.
