2013 Rose Bowl: Does Wisconsin have any tricks left?

US PRESSWIRE

Wisconsin broke out some interesting formations against Nebraska in the Big Ten Championship, but do the Badgers have any tricks left for Stanford?

After the Wisconsin Badgers pulled out all of the stops in their 70-31 victory against Nebraska in the Big Ten Championship game, some are wondering if the Badgers have any tricks left for Stanford when they meet in the Rose Bowl.

The Badgers used a variety of trick plays and unique formations on offense and defense against Nebraska. That included wide receiver reverses, double passes and lining nine players up on one side of the field. On defense, Wisconsin had a lot of success against the Cornhuskers by lining up with just two defensive lineman.

While those tactics worked against Nebraska, Stanford has had over a month to prepare for similar tactics.. With its power running game, Stanford should be able to exploit any defensive package with just two defensive lineman. This leaves the question of what else does Wisconsin have up its sleeve. The Badgers have proven to be willing to try anything and everything meaning they will likely have some new trick to exploit.

Whether or not Stanford will be able to counter attack remains to be seen.
