Florida Atlantic at WisconsinSaturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten NetworkCRIS Opener: Wisconsin -33 O/U 57.5CRIS Current:
Wisconsin -31.5 O/U 60Recommendation:
It was a nightmare matchup in Week 1 for Florida Atlantic as offensive-minded first-year head coach Lane Kiffin was tasked with game planning for Navy's option. The Owls managed to take a 10-7 lead midway through the second quarter but proceeded to be outscored 35-9 the rest of the way. The Midshipmen finished with 526 yards at 6.7 yards per clip. Now, FAU must figure out a way to stop an even more potent offense that can not only run the football but pass as well.
The Badgers struggled early on in Week 1 against Utah State and didn't score their first points until less than two minutes to go in the first half. Despite that, Wisconsin rolled up 59 points and and an ultra-balanced 234 yards on the ground and 244 yards through the air. While game planning for Navy is tricky, at least FAU could focus most of its efforts on stopping the run. The Owls' porous pass defense won't be able to hide on Saturday.
There is a difference between "exciting" and "successful" and while Kiffin remains one of the brighter offensive minds in the game, this season is going to have plenty of pitfalls. There will be chances to outscore the opposition in conference play but FAU simply isn't built to compete in Saturday's environment. Lay the points with confidence.
