Five Keys To Victory - No.6 Wisconsin vs. BYU

MADISON, Wis. – The final nonconference tuneup for No.6 Wisconsin promises to be (on paper) the toughest one yet. After upsetting Arizona on the road, BYU narrowly lost its home opener against Cal last weekend. Credit the Cougars, however, for not playing cupcake teams like Western Kentucky and New Mexico, two schools UW registered big wins over.

The Badgers are nearing full strength on offense as they welcome back receiver Danny Davis off suspension this afternoon for the 2:30 p.m. kickoff. Here are fivee keys to a Wisconsin victory.

KEEP FEEDING THE TAYLORS

Jonathan Taylor is coming off career highs in carries (33) and rushing yards (253). He is the current FBS leader in rushing yards as we head into week three of the college football season. There is no reason now to stop feeding him the rock, especially given his production (199 yards rushing per game). But in order for Taylor to be a serious favorite for the Heisman, he needs to take better care of the football. Taylor has fumbled in each of the first two games.

The other Taylor, A.J. Taylor, is also coming off a receiving career high with 134 yards and a score against New Mexico. Taylor is turning into a sure-fire target for quarterback Alex Hornibrook. With the return of Davis, UW’s offense should be able to better stretch the field, potentially opening up more one-on-one opportunities for Taylor.
