Saturday Blitz Vegas Big Ten Prediction: Wisconsin Wins 55-3

The Wisconsin Badgers have blown out each of the last four teams they play. Iowa, being a rivalry game and this late in the season, will be the biggest one.

Melvin Gordon won’t rush for 408 yards on Saturday, but another 200-yard game is in the works to keep him atop the Heisman race. He and the Badgers offensive line have been flat-out impossible to stop, and part of that is because Joel Stave gives them enough of a passing game to be respected. Doing that has made this rush-heavy offense impossible to stop.

And the defense isn’t so bad either.

Meanwhile, Iowa has had a cake-walk route to 7 wins, and they couldn’t handle even the smallest bump. A loss to Iowa State at the beginning of the year is bad enough, but losses to Maryland and Minnesota make this a team that has yet to beat anybody halfway decent. They are not legitimate, and Wisconsin will prove it Saturday by dominating this game worse than it did Nebraska.

Brace yourself Iowa fans, your team is in for an incredibly rough ride this weekend.
