(Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)This Saturday, No. 13 Wisconsin hosts No. 11 Michigan in a pivotal Big Ten matchup. Both teams have aspirations for a conference title. A win on Saturday will help one team move another step closer — despite it still being so early in the season.The Badgers have been successful for a number of years. Surprisingly though, there have only been four games between top-15 teams at Camp Randall Stadium in the last 20 years. As a result, Wisconsin has sent a message to fans before the game.“This Saturday is a big deal. Be there early. Be loud the whole time. Be proud to be a Badger.”Wisconsin is taking this seriously — as it should be. The Badgers have been consistently good over the last decade, sometimes even great. But they’re looking to take the next step as a program. A selection to the College Football Playoff would be that next step. Beating Michigan would look good on Wisconsin’s potential playoff resume.The 11th-ranked Wolverines came into the year with high expectations. But many feel they’ve been underwhelming this season, despite a 3-0 start. Offensive inconsistency is once again an issue for UM. They’ll face their toughest defensive test so far on Saturday. The Badgers have back-to-back shutouts heading into the game.There have only been four games between top-15 teams at Camp Randall in the last 20 years.This Saturday is a big deal.Be there early.
