Wisconsin linebacker Zack Baun said in July the Badgers were coming for revenge this season.
The first stop on the revenge tour is No. 11 Michigan.
The 13th-ranked Badgers (2-0) open Big Ten play against the Wolverines (2-0) on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. It will be the first time the two teams square off since Michigan thumped Wisconsin 38-13 last October in Ann Arbor.
"We're going to come out with the same intensity that we have for everybody," Wisconsin linebacker Chris Orr said.
After going 8-5 a season ago, its worst mark under fifth-year coach Paul Chryst, the Badgers defense has been dominant through its first two games.
In contrast, the Wolverines opened with a sometimes-lackluster 40-21 win over Middle Tennessee and needed double overtime to put away Army 24-21. Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson knows he's going to have to play much better in order to lead Michigan to its first win at Wisconsin since 2001. "As long as we win, I'm happy," Patterson said.
No. 3 vs. No. 7
In another spotlight game Saturday, third-ranked Georgia will play host to No. 7 Notre Dame. It's only the third meeting between the powerhouse programs — and the first time the Fighting Irish have played between the famed hedges at Sanford Stadium.
"It's going to be a wild one," Georgia tight end Eli Wolf said.
Georgia emerged with a 20-19 victory in 2017 that propelled the team to the national championship game in Kirby Smart's second season as coach.
Trojans top Utes
USC 30, No. 10 Utah 23: Matt Fink replaced starting quarterback Kedon Slovis after Slovis was knocked out of the game on a hard hit on the second play from scrimmage, then led the host Trojans (3-1, 2-0 Pac-12) to victory over the Utes (3-1, 0-1). Fink threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns, including a 77-yarder to Michael Pittman Jr. Utah committed 16 penalties for 120 yards.
