LOCK IT: Wisconsin to beat Michigan

So says Colin Cowherd (link via Mgoblog). As The Diag puts it:

Wisconsin over Michigan. Wow, thanks for going out on a limb there Colin. The #7 team in the country over the #5 team in the country, at home, at night, in November? How could anyone ever predict an upset of such Biblical proportions?

Indeed. The funny thing is that both teams have major stumbling blocks on their schedules prior to this date; UW visits OSU and Penn State, and Michigan hosts Oregon and Notre Dame. Should the Badgers clear their hurdles and the Wolverines pick up a couple losses, it will be amusing to watch as #3 Wisconsin upsets #20 Michigan.
