Wisconsin's defense is led by someone familiar to BYU. Former Utah State defense coordinator Dave Aranda followed Andersen to Wisconsin, and he's installed his tough 3-4 defense. So far it's working, as the Badgers are No. 6 in the nation in total defense.

However, linebacker Chris Borland has been out with a hamstring injury. Borland is a key leader of the Badger front seven, with 57 tackles and two sacks on the season. Fortunately for Wisconsin, Borland expects to play Saturday, according to the Journal Sentinel.

Regardless, BYU's running game will face a tough test, since the Badgers allow just 90.4 rushing yards per game, good enough for No. 5 in the nation.
