Expect defense to be the name of the game on Wednesday night in Gainesville, as the Badgers and Gators do battle. Both of these teams have a rich history of being able to play some great defense, and the ‘total’ is likely to end up being inflated due to the fact that the perception is still there that Florida just wants to run and gun the whole game. Now, it’s true that the tempo might be just a tad more frantic than the Badgers would like at the outset, but there is no team in America that can slow down a game like Wisconsin can. Head Coach Bo Ryan wouldn’t have it any other way. In the end, Florida just isn’t deep enough to be able to contend with a lengthy, athletic Wisconsin defense, but we just don’t have the confidence either, that the Badgers are going to be able to put together a bunch of points on the board either. We do think that Wisconsin is going to be able to come down to the Swamp and knock off the Gators, but we are far more confident that this is going to end up being a low scoring game in which both teams struggle just to get out of the 50s.
