The badgers will win. no one runs the ball or stops the run as well as they do. Plus, they have a QB that doesn't make mistakes.

Wisconsin is actually kind of an SEC style team, great defense and wont blow you away offense, hopefully their defense can hold down Run DMC cause I'm taking Wisconsin.

I think this match-up is better than some of the BCS match-ups. Capital One really scored big time booking this game.

It's kind of hard to pick who wins this game but I'm going to go with Arkansas, but my vote can be persuaded either way depending on who the starting QB is for AR.

I'm glad Arkansas got in there. LSU deserved a BCS bowl and got one, even though I was hoping they would be smelling roses instead of licking sugar. I don't know why the Rose chose USC over LSU. At least LSU's losses came to top 10 teams on the road. I would have liked a Michigan/LSU matchup a whole lot better than a LSU/Notre Dame matchup.

Notre Dame should be playing Wisconsin in the Capital One bowl and Auburn should be playing USC in the Sugar.

I know, I know. In a perfect world there would be a playoff system. In a semi-perfect world more than one team from a conference would make it into the BCS bowl games. Since we're dealing with neither we're stuck with Notre Dame being an Independent and screwing things up.

Arkansas would win if D-Mac is 100%
They went away from the wild cat in the game against UF because D-mac was playing hurt most of the game and if that ankle didnt twist, I still think they would 've won (and take Fish off the special team)

So after Wisconsin wins by a good margin 10-14, will they get the respect they deserve? Maybe a preseason top 5 next years, since they are returning just about their entire team.

I like Arkansas. I really think Houston Nutt will get creative and come up with some gadget plays, especially out of their Wildcat formation, to negate the poor passing game. I like the Razorbacks to come out strong and then control the ball with Darren McFadden, who should carve the Badger defense and solidify himself as the top running back in the nation next year.

If the Razorbacks come out like I expect, it neutralizes P.J. Hill and puts a lot of pressure on John Stocco. If Wisconsin goes down by two scores or more they are in trouble, as Stocco has never shown me that he can move the ball consistently on his own.

I believe Wisconsin is a good team, but not as good as their ranking implies. Arkansas, on the other hand, is better than their ranking implies.

Arkansas 27, Wisconsin 14.

Too bad Ikegwuono had to be a dumbass and go get himself arrested.

You really shouldn't call somebody a dumbass unless you know the facts of a case. From my understanding, Ike's brother Bill is his identical twin, and it's somewhat a case of mistaken identity. And Bill didn't even do anything that bad, as I've heard all he did was illegally enter somebody's abode to get his own XBox back, so it wasn't stealing. It would really be out of character for Ike to do something like this. He's not going to jeopardize an NFL career and status in a bowl game, for a friggin X-box. He could just get one for free from a big football fan if he wanted one that badly. He really does seem like a good kid, and pretty smart as well. He will likely be exonerated in this case. Either way, he should play in the Cap One, because in this country you are innocent until proven guilty, and his court date isn't until after the bowl game. He should be reinstated. I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's tough though because he's always going to have his name associated with this incident now.

Anyway, I think the Badgers bring 8-9 up into the box to stop the run. They have the corners to cover one on one, including Ike. Hopefully that will be enough. Ike and Langford should never leave their receivers, even on a hand off, because we know Arkansas likes the trick play, and they have a couple guys outside their QB who can throw it. Wisconsin should be able to do some things against the Arkansas D. Especially with the running game and I think Beckum will be a mismatch on their linebackers. I like their cornerback Houston, and I don't think we should go at him much. He's better than our receivers. I think Wisconsin wins in a very good game. Like some said, this is better than a couple of the BCS games.

obviously I'm biased, but I think the Badgers have a shot to win this game by 2 or 3 scores. They (Wisky) are ALWAYS underdogs. They have won 3 Rose Bowls and many other bowl games since '94. How people still bet against them is beyond me. Wasn't Auburn 14 point favorites 11 months ago? Didn't Wisky win by 14, while downing the ball on the one yard line to not rub it in?

OMG NO THEY SHOULDNT

yodachu i normally agree with you so this hurts for me to about to dominate you here,

Wisconsin didnt get screwed over, you want to know why they arent in a BCS bowl

Because they didnt beat a single ranked team and they got lucky and didnt have to play Ohio State and there non conference schedulue was hands down the weakest in the nation, 5 bucks to name a team that had a easier non confernce schedule.

wisconsin played at Bowling Green (4-8) home vs Western Illinois (5-6) home vs San Diego State (3-9) home vs Buffalo (2-10)

Wisconsin doesnt even deserve to be in the Capitol One Bowl

That's not why, they're not in one because of the 2 teams per conference rule. That fact that they are #7 and not in one is what pisses me off. If the coaches and media and computers have them that high they need to be in a BCS game. In the coaches poll they are 5th, you don't think that they know what they are voting for.

Hey Wisconsin fans stop complaining about the BCS and go on the road and play Texas or at Notre Dame kick their ass then talk to me about being in a BCS bowl, instead you go to power house Bowling Green and beat them and expect to be considered with Michigan and Ohio State.

Wisconsin has proven nothing to me,

and they are not in a BCS because THEY HAVENT DONE SH%T THIS YEAR, the two teams in same conference is a good rule because an undeserving team like Wisconsin does not deserve to be considered with the elite of college football.

Lol why should they go and play Texas ND etc, to prove it to who? People that couldn't put them in the BCS anyways?

Even if they had done so and won every out-of-conference game... they still wouldn't be in the BCS because of 1 loss at Mich and the 2 teams per conference rule... and then everyone would be even more pissed off, so they got into the best bowl they possibly could this year (if you gaurantee that loss at Mich and OSU winning them all) so it's a good thing they had the schedule they had.

The rest of the big ten was supposed to be much better this year, and the Badgers couldn't really help how crappy the teams they beat were (in conference that is.) The one thing you CAN help is who you lose to, and losing to the #2 (now 3 I guess) team in the country in a road game is about as understandable of a loss as a team can have.

That all being said, I think this is going to be a close game and Wisconsin better show up, because this is basically there only chance to show just how good they are, or aren't. So we'll see in January.

All these people who say Wisconsin doesn't deserve a BCS bid have yet to say why ND, Boise State, USC, Wake, Louisville deserve it over them. I understand that 3 of them get automatic bids, but they are no more deserving than Wisconsin.

ND only beat Penn State, and got crushed by the 2 decent teams they played.

Boise State's best win was Oregon State.

USC lost to 2 unranked teams.

Wake Forest hasn't played anyone impressive.

Louisville only beat West Virginia, who lost to the powerhouse that is South Florida.

To say that UW doesn't deserve to be in in front of even 1 of those teams is preposterous.

There are autobids forthe Big Ten, SEC, Big12, Big East, ACC, and PAC10; the other for are at large.


No, new rule is a mid major in the BCS top 12 gets in automatically.

And a Notre Dame in the top 8.

Really? I just thought that because they were undefeated and ranked fairly high they got an at large.

I am taking Bucky by a TD. McFadden might get his yards. But, everyone knows the most obvious thing will happen at the beginning of the game. Bret Bielema will stack 8 or 9 in the box against Casey Dick and that horrendous pass attack.

I know Ark. has that "Wildcat" formation but its either going to be McFadden Right, McFadden Left, McFadden Pass.

Should be a great game. Lots of running and very little passing - my kind of football

wisconsin may not have had the toughest schedule...but you cannot discount any team that goes 11-1 in a major conference.

Too bad Ikegwuono had to be a dumbass and go get himself arrested.

So after Wisconsin wins by a good margin 10-14, will they get the respect they deserve? Maybe a preseason top 5 next years, since they are returning just about their entire team.
except probably one of the best badgers in history but you can always rely on the badgers to produce more and more o lineman

True, but I don't think the line will suffer too big of a drop off. The unit is more important than a single player. Yes, I understand that is cliche, but it is completely true on the O-line.

It's just too bad that when Wisconsin wears Arkansas out by a few TDs everyone will say "well, Arkansas was just the SECs third best team anyway."

Yep, just like after beating auburn last year, they still didn't get any respect.

I really thought the Badgers schedule was riddicilious this year, why is that we are never playing any of the better teams. Instead we are always playing **** teams like Buffalo, Western Illinois, San Diego State, and so on. That is the only reason the Badgers never have a chance of making the BCS, there schedule always involves easy opponents. When will this ever change. We should be playing tougher teams, and not teams we are going to consistently clobber. I am confident the Badgers will go out there and pound the Razorbacks.

Our offensive line is one of the best in the nation, I do not see Arkansas stopping us on offense. PJ Hill is hard to tackle and our offensive line is pretty dominant, we also rarely make any turnovers. The only thing I am concerned about is our defense and how they will play against a good Arkansas offense. I guess we will find out.
