The Notre Dame football team takes on Wisconsin on Saturday, and here are three members of the Badgers that must be stopped.
In a crucial matchup inside Soldier Field, the Notre Dame football team will take on the Wisconsin Badgers this Saturday. Wisconsin lost their season opener at home against Penn State, who is now the No. 6-ranked team in the country, before blowing out Eastern Michigan before their bye week.
Now, they will head to Chicago to take on an undefeated Notre Dame football team, and if the Irish are going to win on Saturday, these three Badgers must be stopped.
Notre Dame Football vs. Wisconsin: 3 Badgers who must be stopped
Leo Chenal, Linebacker
The Wisconsin Badgers are getting linebacker Leo Chenal back for this matchup, which is a scary scenario for this Notre Dame football offense. Teamed with Jack Sanborn, Chenal is one of the more dominant linebackers in the Big Ten, and he is finally back after missing the first two games due to COVID protocol.
This is a linebacker duo that can be very disruptive, especially in the run game, where the Irish like to attack with running back Kyren Williams. If Chenal is 100 percent, it is going to be tough to put up points against a defense that is 11th in the country in opposing points per game.
