At this point, Wisconsin can't afford to look past anybody.
And with one game left before the start of the Big Ten season, Saturday's game against UTEP at Camp Randall Stadium represents one last chance for Wisconsin to show it can get its sputtering offense going.
The Badgers (2-1) started the season with a narrow victory over FCS school Northern Iowa, a loss at Oregon State and another white-knuckle win over Utah State last week. Their typically dominant offensive line has been having trouble opening up holes for Montee Ball.
Transfer Danny O'Brien won the quarterback job in camp, but was replaced at halftime of last week's game by Joel Stave, who coach Brett Bielema says will make his first college start Saturday.
