TV Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 31, 12:00 p.m. ET, BTN

Stadium: Camp Randall Stadium

Line: Wisconsin (-20.5)

Although the Wisconsin Badgers have maybe a 1 percent chance of making the College Football Playoff, they still have plenty to play for entering Week 9 of the 2015 college football season.

With a victory against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Wisconsin would move to 7-2 on the season. On top of that pretty impressive record, the Badgers would have a great shot of entering the top 25 rankings once again, and they would keep their Big 10 title hopes alive — which is the No. 1 reason why fans should still be excited about this season.

Unfortunately for Rutgers, it’s playing for pride at this point … and possibly a spot in a bowl game? The Scarlet Knights are 3-4 and need a giant miracle to knock off Wisconsin.

Keep in mind, the Badgers might have two losses, but said losses came against the Iowa Hawkeyes and Alabama Crimson Tide. Iowa is still undefeated and Alabama could end up in the playoff once again despite having one loss.

Wisconsin might not have the goods to win a Big 10 title this year, but it certainly has the goods to beat Rutgers … in blowout fashion.

Here’s an interesting fact: Wisconsin is only allowing 11.1 points per game, while Rutgers is allowing 32 points per game.

If any contest is going to get out of hand this Halloween weekend, it very well could be this one.

PREDICTION: Scarlet Knights 10, Badgers 52
