Wisconsin and Notre Dame are grabbing national headlines heading into the matchup at Soldier Field on Saturday. This morning, the Big Ten Network studio crew previewed the Badgers and the Fighting Irish while including a tale of the statistical tape for the two programs.
Dave Revsine and Anthony Herron were in studio to break down the matchup, predict where the game would be won or lost, and provide a statistical background for the two premier programs.
If anything on jumps out on paper, it has to be the statistical differences between Wisconsin’s defense and Notre Dame’s defense despite the small sample size.
The Badgers are giving up just 194.5 yards per contest while Notre Dame is allowing 381 yards per game.
