Five Keys to Victory - No.23 Wisconsin vs. Illinois

After getting steamrolled by then-No.12 Michigan, No.23 Wisconsin looks to rebound against an Illinois team coming off a 46-7 Homecoming loss to Purdue. Even though a berth in the College Football Playoffs is out of the picture, Wisconsin still controls its own fate in the Big Ten West Division race if it wins out.

Here are the keys to victory for Wisconsin.

1, Keep the Streak Alive

Illinois has not had much luck against Wisconsin, losing 12 of the last 13 meetings and has not won at Camp Randall Stadium since 2002. The Badgers’ average margin of victory over their last eight wins over Illinois is 17.8 points. This is a Wisconsin team coming off a big loss and looking to bounce back in a big way. UW needs to play like a desperate team to make sure Illinois has its hands full.
