Wisconsin and Michigan State open their Big Ten campaigns on Saturday in East Lansing. 

Both team are undefeated thus far. The Badgers (3–0) have wins over LSU, Akron and Georgia State, while the Spartans (2–0) beat Furman by two touchdowns in Week 1 and took a week off before their win over Notre Dame last Saturday. 

Wisconsin enters the game with a quarterback controversy on its hands. Senior Bart Houston and redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook both saw action in last week’s 23–17 with over Georgia State. Badgers coach Paul Chryst has not indicated who will start. 

Wisconsin enters the game ranked No. 11 and Michigan State comes in at No. 8, the highest combined rankings in the history of the matchup.
