The Big Ten Conference West Division lead is on the line when the No. 10 University of Wisconsin football team (2-0) squares off with No. 19 Northwestern (4-0).

History isn't on UW's side, as it is 1-5 in its last six games at Ryan Field. But after getting through a COVID-19 outbreak and dismantling Michigan on the road, the Badgers have reason for optimism on Saturday.

Let's go phase-by-phase to break this game down.
