The calm before the storm: 20 Wisconsin vs. 3 Alabama

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas -- All is quiet at AT&T Stadium now, but that will change soon enough as 20th ranked Wisconsin gets ready to face third ranked Alabama at 7 pm tomorrow.

Wisconsin is a double-digit underdog as they face off against the school with the most wins in the country since 2008.
This type of marquee matchup to open the season is the new normal at Wisconsin. The Badgers had won 16 straight season openers, many against lesser competition, before falling to LSU last year. UW will open with LSU again next year as they are purposely improving on the strength of schedule.
The Badgers are opening with a bang, and according to junior cornerback Sojourn Shelton, this is just the way they like it.

"Playing LSU... the atmosphere, the environment, the atmosphere around the game, before the game, it was crazy and it was an amazing environment."

Senior linebacker Vince Biegel echoed his fellow defenseman.

"Personally, I'd rather go big or go home, "Biegel quickly answered,"Get ready to go. Play against a great team like Alabama. College Gameday is there. This is what it's all about."

ESPN's College Gameday will broadcast live from Fort Worth starting at 8 am.
