ESPN’s FPI has updated projections and predictions for the 2022 college football season. That includes predicting the outcome of every game on Wisconsin’s schedule.

Despite a 9-win performance and bowl win last season, many felt the Badgers underperformed at times in 2021. Part of that was a lackluster showing by QB Graham Mertz and a slow start out of the gate to start the season.

Now, Wisconsin has a chance to flip the script in 2022. The Football Power Index is giving the Badgers great odds to get off to hot start before heading to Columbus to face Ohio State.
