The BYU Cougars take their show on the road this weekend as they face No. 24 Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. Start time in tomorrow's meeting between the Cougars and Badgers is set for 3:30pm ET; the game will be broadcast live on ESPN. Update Saturday College Football Odds from offshore bookmaker 5Dimes have Wisconsin listed as a -8.5 against the spread home favorite and the Over/Under set at 55.5 points.
BYU got off to a rough 1-2 start as it fell at Virginia and at Utah, but it has been on a major roll since. The Cougars ride a five game winning streak into tomorrow's meeting with the Badgers and they compiled that record against some pretty salty competition.
BYU earned double digit home wins over Middle Tennessee, Georgia Tech, and Boise State and it handed Utah State and Houston losses in their own cribs.
Despite that daunting slate, the Cougars are taking a step up tomorrow. Wisconsin brings a 6-2 record into this contest and its two losses came on the ranked against ranked teams in Arizona State and Ohio State. The Badgers earned a push in their meeting with the Buckeyes and they covered the number by 4.5 points against the Sun Devils.
Wisconsin, which is coming off back to back road wins over Illinois and Iowa, has been a juggernaut at Camp Randall thus far where it has dispatched visitors by an average of 38.3 points per game.
It should be noted, though, that the Badgers home schedule has consisted of Massachusetts, Tennessee Tech, Purdue, and Northwestern. The only team on that list worth anything is Northwestern and Wisconsin had the benefit of catching the Wildcats off their first loss of the season.
Suffice it to say the Cougars are a step up for the Badgers as well, at least compared to to the other teams they have hosted, and Wisconsin can count on a game effort from Bronco Mendenhall's squad.
Notable Trends: BYU is 3-2 straight up and 4-1 against the spread in its last five games as a road dog with a total of 54.5 or more points.
