Badgers ‘D’ is best

Wisconsin’s defense, strong against both the run and pass, ranks No. 1 in the nation in points allowed (12.4 points per game). What does that mean for opposing offenses? Less a point per possession. The nation’s top five in that category:

1. Wisconsin (8-3) .81 ppp

2. Michigan (9-2) .90 ppp

3. Alabama (10-1) .92 ppp

4. Ohio State (10-1) .93 ppp

5. Florida (10-1) .94 ppp
