The Wisconsin Football team has another fairly easy schedule in 2018. Let’s rank them from least to most difficult based on projections for this year.
The Wisconsin football team got a bad reputation last year after playing a very soft schedule. Unfortunately, that likely won’t change throughout the 2018 season unless something unforeseen happens.
The Badgers kick off the season by playing one of the easiest non-conference schedules in the land. They play New Mexico, BYU and Western Kentucky. Certainly not a trio of teams that puts fear into anybody. Especially considering all three games are played in the friendly confines of Camp Randall stadium.
The Badgers conference schedule is a bit more difficult, especially if Michigan and Penn State play as expected. Those are the only two real schedule boosters Wisconsin has and has to hope those teams play up to par as the season goes on or they could lose their only chance to prove they are an elite team.
Of course, the Badgers aren’t helped by the fact that teams like Illinois and Rutgers are supposed to be two of the worst power conference teams in the nation. Adding these two cupcakes to the schedule basically makes the non-conference cake-walk a five-game schedule. Without getting into too much detail here, let’s rank the opponents, from easiest to hardest, that the Badgers will play this season.
