Bucky Warpath

With #19 Wisconsin (5-1) marching into town, the temperature has dropped dramatically. Will we finally experience a true fall football game at the Beav? Oddsmakers in Vegas has placed Penn State (4-2) as a 6.5 point favorite coming into this game (higher than the Illini favored against Wisconsin a week ago). But it doesn't truely feel like we are the favorites entering the game. Granted we are still undefeated save the Michigan game last year for the past three years here at home, with Morelli under center it just doesn't really feel like we have a bigger shot at knocking off Bucky than the Illini.

Defense should definately keep us close in this game. With Swan out for the Badgers, they should be more dependant on a strong running game behind PJ Hill but Beaver Stadium has always been a deathbed for Heisman contenders with:
  • Kyle Orton (#9 Purdue) in 2004 throwing his first interceptions in Beaver Stadium.
  • Lawrence Maroony (#18 Minnesota) a considerable Heisman running back contender was held to a season low 48 yards behind Bradley's vaulted defense.
  • Remember Brian Calhoun? Wisconsin's (# 14) very own Heisman candidate was also bottled up for 38 yards on 20 carries after averaging 135 yards a game prior to walking into the Beav.
  • Troy Smith (#6) the golden boy at Ohio State suffered his only away loss of his collegiate career (minus the fiasco in the National Championship in 2007) here at our very own Beaver stadium.
