Notre Dame vs Wisconsin Football History
Notre Dame vs Wisconsin Prediction And Odds: Match Preview
The Wisconsin Badgers will be set to pounce on Notre Dame’s defense and especially on Kyle Hamilton. The Badgers will seemingly test Notre Dame’s defense, more specifically in the run game and on the outside. However, the Fighting Irish offense looks balanced, credits to the fence they have created at the left tackle, which includes the pairing of Jim Leonhard and Jack Coan. The duo will seemingly give the Badger’s defense a run for their money.
However, the action in Week 1 proved that an impact safety can cease the Wisconsin offense from causing much harm. Pann State’s Jaquan Brisker had a field day against the Wisconsin offense. Brisker inflicted a game-changing fourth-quarter interception on the goal line. Kyle Hamilton, who is one of the most highly-rated NFL draft lookouts, will need to have a similar game for Notre Dame in the next week.
Wisconsin’s offense will have to plan something extra to get past Kyle Hamilton on Saturday. Notre Dame will put their money on their No.14 to keep Wisconsin’s offense on par. Wisconsin will try their best to keep the ball away as far as possible from Hamilton, whether he is playing in the secondary, in the middle of the field, or on the scrimmage line. We have stats to back our claims. Hamilton has recorded a total of 11 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 tackles-for-loss in a span of just 2 games.
Hamilton has already proved his mettle with his solid set of interceptions against Florida State in week 1. He handed out a glimpse of his play-making abilities and his wide range of defensive attributes. Hamilton continued his fine form against the Boilermaker offense as well. Wisconsin’s are expected to grove their way on the ground against Notre Dame, but their main worry lies in the red zone and the rest of the crucial down-and-distance situations.

Notre Dame vs Wisconsin Prediction And Odds: Players To Watch Out For
Notre Dame Player News
The Fighting Irish’s matchup against the Purdue Boilermakers gave a clear indication that Coan is their first-choice QB along with Tyler Buchner. Coan marked 15-31 for 231 yards and a total of 2 touchdowns against the Boilers. Coan was seen struggling at the start of the game but later covered up pretty well. Buchner, on the other end, attempted only a single pass, which ended up being intercepted.
Avery Davis stepped up for the Fighting Irish when the likes of Lenzy, Austin, and Mayer went missing. Davis produced a quality 62-yard touchdown against the Boilermakers and also went after Lenzy’s drop. Davis grabbed a total of 5 balls for 120 yards. He lifted Notre Dame’s offense in their last game and is expected to do the same in the weekend.
Kyle Hamilton is more than stats for the Notre Dame side. He is already a massive figure on the field. His tackle to David Bell literally made the crowd numb for 20 minutes. He is undoubtedly the best defensive back in the country. He is expected to thrive this season and is one of the main reasons behind Notre Dame’s success this season.
JD Bertrand shone once against as a linebacker. He pulled off 12 tackles on Saturday. Bertrand marked a total of 10 games in a row with 10 or more stops in each of them. Bertrand’s consistency has eased Notre Dame’s issues in the offense.
Wisconsin Player News
Graham Mertz, who happens to be a four-star recruit and also high school All-America, is a player for the future. He has already displayed his calibre so early in his Badger’s career. Mertz nabbed 20 for 21 with five touchdowns in last season’s opener.
Jake Ferguson, who was a preseason All-American, is tipped to be one of the best and upcoming tight end in college football this season. He has featured in a total of 34 games for Wisconsin and has gathered more than 1,000 receiving yards for the side.
Logan Brown is arguably one of the top-rated recruits in Wisconsin football’s history. Brown, who is a former five-star starlet from the 2019 batch, surely has the ability to become the best in the country and enter the NFL in the coming season.
