Meet the former option QB who now anchors Wisconsin's O-line

As a high school sophomore, David Edwards was leading an option attack. As a senior, he was being recruited as a tight end. Now, thanks to a 5,100-calories-a-day diet adding 100 pounds and a nonstop work ethic, Edwards and Wisconsin are running wild.

FPI: Badgers given edge vs. Wolverines

Michigan defeated Wisconsin last season and is looking to win consecutive games in this series for the first time since reeling off six straight from 1997-2002. ESPN's FPI, however, likes the Badgers' chances to remain unbeaten when the two teams clash on Saturday.

Wisconsin a win away from rare feat

Iowa in 2015 is the only Big Ten school not named Ohio State or Michigan to start a season 11-0 in the last two decades. The Badgers have won 11 straight games overall and 13 straight in conference play -- both the second-longest active streaks of their kind in FBS. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Rush leaders are neck and neck

Bryce Love and Rashaad Penny have been nothing short of outstanding for their respective teams, but when it comes to who trumps the other, Love leads in rushing by just 20 yards this season. The race is close, and don't count out Jonathan Taylor just yet either.

Wisconsin remains on the outside looking in when it comes to the College Football Playoff. The Badgers would instead face off against a Pac-12 opponent in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl.

Fear not, Big Ten, your CFP hopes are not lost

While the SEC and ACC seem virtually assured of at least one place in the playoff, the Big Ten can take solace in the latest rankings. Wisconsin moved up to No. 5, and Ohio State remained on the edge of the conversation at No. 9.

While undefeated Wisconsin is still on the outside looking in at No. 5, it's still an improvement. The ACC championship game is already set, with No. 2 Clemson facing No. 3 Miami, so one of those teams ahead of Wisconsin will lose. It's also good for Wisconsin that its next opponent, Michigan, is ranked at No. 24, which should help the Badgers' strength of schedule. Wisconsin's win over No. 20 Iowa wasn't enough this week, but it's clear the Badgers can keep climbing if they keep winning.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Wisconsin slides all the way up to No. 5 and now gets a chance to pick up its second win against a ranked opponent in as many weeks. After beating Iowa(No. 20 at the time) last week, Michigan comes to Madison ranked No. 24.
