This is the 11th in my series of interviews with selected 2023 SuperWest nonconference football opponents.
We discuss the Badgers roster, preview the Cougars-Badgers game, give our predictions, and reflect on last year’s surprising outcome.
The teams are coming off similar seasons, with both going 7-6 in 2022. Wisconsin defeated Oklahoma State in the Guaranteed Rate Bowl whereas WSU lost to Fresno State in the LA Bowl.
They face off on September 9 at Martin Stadium at 4:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
Wisconsin leads the all-time series between the teams 3-1, with Wazzu upsetting the Badgers 17-14 last year in Madison. Saturday’s game marks the first time they will meet in Pullman.
