According to media on the scene at Michigan Stadium tonight, the Wolverines will once again be without their two starting offensive tackles, as well as defensive end Kwity Paye. This leaves them without both of their star defensive ends after Aidan Hutchinson suffered a fracture in last week’s loss to Indiana.
The offensive line from left to right will be Karsen Barnhart, Chuck Filaga, Andrew Vastardis, Zak Zinter and Andrew Stueber. Carlo Kemp is expected to slide over to end with Taylor Upshaw on the other side of him, while Donovan Jeter and Chris Hinton will start inside at tackle.
For Wisconsin, nine players on the two-deep depth chart will be out of action, but quarterback Graham Mertz is not one of them. He was uniform warming and is expected to get the start at quarterback for the Badgers.
I didn’t know teams still did injury reports (jealous), but Wisconsin provides this. Nine two-deep players to be missing for the Badgers. pic.twitter.com/CO6hnhjxzo— Zach Shaw (@_ZachShaw) November 15, 2020
Saturday night’s game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast via ABC. Wisconsin is up to a 7-point favorite per Vegas odds.
