Week 2 Preview: San Jose State @ Wisconsin

Posted By Chad Seely On Sep 9 2010 @ 6:49 pm In Wisconsin | No Comments

I’m gonna come right out and tell you this one will be done by halftime. 

If you don’t know much about San Jose State, lets get you caught up.  Out of 120 FBS teams, the Spartans came in at #115 in total offense last year and this year is not looking much more promising.  Granted, they did have to travel to Tuscaloosa in Week 1 so an accurate reading might lie a few weeks down the road.  But by Saturday afternoon, you aren’t gonna care about San Jose State.  Talk about a tough schedule to open the season, though.  Going to Alabama and then Camp Randall the following weekend…ouch.

Look for the Badgers to do a lot of the same things they did early on against UNLV.  They are going to give John Clay a heavy dose early and mix in Montee Ball and James White later on.  I like the Badgers to open up a little play action for Scott Tolzien and the recieving corps after they establish the ground game.  One thing to pay attention to that I hit on in my last blog is the play of Josh Oglesby and Ricky Wagner.  If Oglesby doesn’t have a clean game, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Wagner start against Arizona State.

On the other side of the ball you can expect a good rotation going on the D-line.  Week 1 featured about 10 guys rotating in and out and I anticipate the same against San Jose State.  Against Arizona State, you might see that number come down a little but not much.  I’m going to predict another defensive or special teams touchdown from Bucky this week…we’ll see what happens.

So, by the time “Jump Around” comes screaming outta the Camp Randall speakers, this one should be well in the Badgers favor.  It might not be good football, but it’s needed for the Badgers as they prepare for the Sun Devils the following week in Madison.  Here’s my prediction:

Wisconsin 48       San Jose State 13
