The week ahead

Game of the week

No. 11 Wisconsin at No. 4 Michigan, 2:30 p.m., Saturday, TV TBD

The Badgers and Wolverines haven't met since 2010, when Wisconsin administered its second consecutive beatdown of 20 points or more against Michigan. Of course, those Wolverines were coached by Rich Rodriguez, not Jim Harbaugh. But Wisconsin's rout of Michigan State certainly served notice that it isn't to be taken lightly.
