Week 1 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the Illinois State Redbirds and No. 18 Wisconsin Badgers. The 2021 season was a disaster for the Redbirds, who went an abysmal 2-6 against the MVFC in addition to going 4-7 overall. While Illinois State won its opener against Butler a year ago, things will be much tougher against Wisconsin.

Speaking of which, the Badgers look to build on last year's success. While a 9-4 record (6-3 vs. Big Ten) wasn't anything eye-popping, Wisconsin did end its schedule on a high note, walking out of the Las Vegas Bowl with a 20-13 victory over Arizona State.

Illinois State vs Wisconsin Prediction & Pick

This upcoming matchup is just one of many Week 1 mismatches. While the odds aren't available quite yet, it isn't hard to imagine Wisconsin being heavily favored over an MVFC school like Illinois State. After all, there's a reason why Wisconsin only surrendered 16.2 points per game (No. 3) while competing in the Big Ten last fall.

Illinois State hasn't exactly performed well lately against Wisconsin's conference, going 1-7 straight up against their last eight Big Ten performances. With the Badgers also winning 17 of their last 20 games played in September as well, there really isn't a reason to like the Redbirds' chances.

Final Score Prediction: Wisconsin: 35 | Illinois State: 10
