Wisconsin at Temple Prediction 12/6/2017

The Badgers have played a tough schedule so far this season, but it’s difficult to have a lot of confidence in a team that has dropped five of their last seven games. The Owls have ha a light schedule with just six games under their belts, but have shown flashes winning four of those games. In the two losses the defense let them down, however in comes the Wisconsin offense that has had all kinds of problems putting up points this campaign. Temple won three of their four games by double digits and the other by six, so extending the margin shouldn’t be an issue.
