This Saturday, Arizona State football will take on the University of Wisconsin in a game that promises to garner national attention. The Sun Devils are fresh off a 55-0 victory over Sacramento State, while the Badgers come into Tempe with a resounding 2-0 early season record.
Since Wisconsin is an infrequent visitor to the desert (their last tilt with the Sun Devils, in 1968, resulted in a 55-7 defeat), we thought it might be useful to offer ASU fans the following Badger trivia:
