Michigan and Wisconsin are tied 7-7 at the half.

Bad things can happen on the road. Just ask the Wolverines.

They have yet to beat a ranked opponent away from Michigan Stadium since 2006. They haven’t beaten Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium since 2001, either.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines have the odds stacked against them in Madison.

Michigan will travel to Madison to take on No. 5 Wisconsin, eager to redeem its record against top competition. Here’s how the Wolverines match up with the Badgers on Saturday.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters will need to be more than just a game manager in Madison.

One loss could all but extinguish those hopes for the Badgers. Here’s what to watch for as Michigan looks to derail Wisconsin’s playoff hopes Saturday.

Wisconsin tight end Troy Fumagalli currently ranks first in receiving yards in the Big Ten this year.

The Daily spoke with Fumagalli at Big Ten Media Days in July about Wisconsin’s passing game and his impression of the Wolverines.

Sophomore cornerback Lavert Hill exited the game against Maryland and entered concussion protocol this week.

Though Lavert Hill is still in concussion protocol and will likely miss Saturday's game, Mike Zordich said Michigan will be “absolutely fine.”

Sophomore tight end Sean McKeon was the butt of jokes after catching his first touchdown against Minnesota and shushing his own crowd.

After spending a year under Jake Butt's tutelage, McKeon accomplished his goal of becoming Michigan's starting tight end.

Sophomore running back Chris Evans has scored four rushing touchdowns in his last two games.

As the first few games of the season came around, Evans lost his starting role. But he began getting more carries, and the results began to show.

Sophomore safety Josh Metellus was relieved to find out he wasn't suspended against Maryland, and he came up with a punt block against the Terrapins.

The relief of blocking his first punt may not have compared to what Metellus felt early last week, when he discovered he was eligible to play in the first half against the Terrapins.

Fifth-year senior center Patrick Kugler said that with its own year on the line, Michigan is out to ruin seasons.

But in order to pull off the feat, Michigan will have to play spoiler. The Wolverines have embraced that role wholeheartedly.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh provided updates on the slew of injuries currently facing his team.

The stage for the return couldn’t be much bigger. The fifth-ranked Badgers are out to defend an undefeated record. Michigan is dead set on winning out.
