Who knows who the scouts will be there to see? The game has a lot of talent on both sides.
This is especially true in the running game for both teams. Chase Brown and Braelon Allen are two of the top talents to watch. Tommy DeVito has been a leader on offense for the Fighting Illini.
On defense, Nick Herbig will be leading the way for Wisconsin. He led the Badgers in sacks last season with 9, and had 61 total tackles. The Illinois defense has been on a roll as of late as well, shutting out Chattanooga and holding Virginia to three points in its last two wins.
Bret Bielema’s return to Camp Randall as a head coach will be something special to watch. Bielema is going to Wisconsin for the first time since leaving for the Arkansas job in 2012.
