The Badgers & Vols are pretty evenly matched here. A few solid wins, no real bad losses. If there's an edge, it's to Tennessee.

Tennessee gets the edge in progress too, having been on a solid streak until they barely lost to LSU in the SEC Championship.

The Line: Wisconsin +1.5

The Story: The first of the Big 10 vs SEC matchups - should be a good game.

The Call: Tennessee by 7

The Result: Tennessee 21-17 = The Badgers showed a lot of toughness, bouncing back time and again, but in the end the Vols were just too solid.
