WIS­CON­SIN over Byu by 17

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 6 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

The Bad­gers led Group of 5 light­weight New Mex­ico just 10-7 at the half in last week’s 31-point win, but frus­trated Wis­con­sin back­ers can take so­lace in not­ing that fa­vorites of 17 or more points in Game Three of the sea­son, off a pair of SU wins and ATS losses, are 11-4-1 ATS. Work­horse RB Jonathan Tay­lor has rolled up nearly 400 yards on the ground with 5 TDs in the first two games and could be the best RB in the na­tion. But un­til the Bad­gers cash a ticket or play a com­plete game, we can’t go to the win­dow with them. Es­pe­cially since the Cougars bring a lofty

record as road dogs with re­venge into this af­fair (lost 40-6 at home to Wisky last year, BYU’s worst home de­feat since 2011). The Mor­mons also hold a 7-1 ATS mark as dogs of 7 or more points ver­sus un­de­feated foes. The in­con­sis­tent Cougs have been phys­i­cal on de­fense (Ari­zona’s Khalil Tate was held to just 14 rush­ing yards in the opener), but sput­tered at times on of­fense in the loss to Cal. We’ll look for the good Brigham Young­sters to show up in Madi­son.
