Coach Bielema pointed out in the press conference this morning that the NCAA has the Badgers listed as #6 in the country for strength of schedule. Interesting . . .
Anyway, here's how our opponents did this week:
Akron (2-2) beat Army easily. Not a bad MAC opponent, it seems.
Marshall (3-1) beat C-USA power Southern Miss: that's a quality win.
Fresno State (2-1) survived an upset bid by Toledo, 55-54 in double overtime.
Michigan (1-2) turned the ball over several more times, but survived against "Bye."
Ohio State (3-1) struggled to beat Troy; Pryor will be great, but isn't yet a downfield passing threat.
Penn State (4-0) destroyed another cupcake (Temple). Probably won't face a good defense until they come to Madison.
Iowa (3-1) lost a tough roadie against a mediocre Pittsburgh team; need to solve their quarterback controversy.
Illinois (2-1) was idle.
Michigan State (3-1) solid win over an improving, but inconsistent Notre Dame.
Indiana (2-1) lost an embarrassing one to Ball State, and it wasn't close.
Minnesota (4-0) believe that? Not that they've played anyone, but it's definitely improvement.
Cal Poly SLO (2-1) easily beat Northwestern State. Likely a solid FCS team. For what that's worth.
