Wisconsin needs defense to show up

PASADENA, Calif. -- I'm still not sure TCU can stop Wisconsin, but the Badgers still have only one touchdown despite consistently moving the ball.

Special teams has hurt Wisconsin a bit as Philip Welch just missed a field goal, and the defense has looked overmatched against Andy Dalton and TCU. The Badgers' defense is the one non-elite unit in this game. If it doesn't meet the challenge against Dalton and his weapons, Wisconsin will be in major trouble.

I still really like the offensive game plan, and if Wisconsin can stay out of third-and-long, it should score enough. But Dalton has looked unstoppable so far, and someone needs to make a play on the Badgers' defense.

Wisconsin trails 14-10 midway through the second quarter.
