Wisconsin Future Football Schedules Analysis

Wisconsin has won 141 games over the last 14 years, one of only six Power Five programs to average 10 wins over that time frame. Only two of those wins, however, have come in 11 meetings against Ohio State, which has constantly stood as a roadblock to Badgers success.

When the Big Ten released conference football schedules for the 2022-2025 seasons Wednesday, Wisconsin found out it will face Ohio State every season as a conference crossover opponent.

Ohio State has won the last six meetings against Wisconsin, including a 27-21 victory over the Badgers in the Big Ten championship game last season. It was UW’s only loss in a 13-1 campaign.

The Badgers’ crossover games with the East division are as follows: at Michigan State, vs. Maryland and at Ohio State in 2022; vs. Rutgers, vs. Ohio State and at Indiana in 2023; at Michigan, vs. Penn State and at Ohio State in 2024; vs. Ohio State, vs. Michigan State and at Maryland in 2025.

Another revelation of the schedule release was that Wisconsin will open the 2022 season with a conference game against Illinois on Sept. 3. 

The Badgers are also slated to take on FCS opponents Illinois State (Sept. 24, 2022) and South Dakota (Sept.21, 2024), MAC opponent Buffalo (Sept. 2, 2023), Virginia Tech (Sept. 14, 2024 in Madison, Sept. 13, 2025 in Blacksburg), Pac-12 foe Washington State (Sept. 10, 2022 in Madison and Sept. 9, 2023 in Pullman), Mountain West opponent Hawaii (Sept. 17, 2022 in Madison, August 31, 2024 in Honolulu) and Conference USA opponent North Texas (Sept.6, 2025).
