Before the season began, this game was circled by many college football observers as one of the bigger contests of the year. Despite Wisconsin’s loss to Penn State, and Notre Dame’s less than stellar 3-0 start — this game remains one of the bigger contests of the year. It’s still a top 15 matchup, and arguably the best game of the day. FOX is broadcasting the game, and had already marked it for their pregame show for the Big Noon Kickoff — and then ESPN announced that they too will be present for College Gameday.
So I guess that makes this game a big deal (and it has nothing to do with the location).
It’s a week that can catapult the winner towards a very successful season, while the loser will be left scrambling for answers.
