Madison (WQOW) -- The Badgers are the only team in Division I college football that has yet to allow a point this season.

Still, you wonder whether playing U-Mass and Tennessee Tech has prepared Wisconsin for its trip to Arizona State.

The Badgers visit the Sun Devils Saturday night.  Wisconsin is sure to face some sort of adversity in Tempe, something the Badgers haven't dealt with in outscoring two overmatched opponents by a total of 93-0.

"We're playing a lot of young kids who have gotten into the moment and have not panicked in the moment which is great to see, so it's prepared us," says Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen, "at this point of the season it is time to move on and away we go to play the next team on our schedule and we're excited about the opportunity so I believe we'll be prepared."

"We've been playing against each other through weeks and weeks of camp and you've seen the defense has been really good and the offense has been productive," says Badgers sophomore quarterback Joel Stave, "going into a tougher test I believe that will prepare us well."

Wisconsin announces that its September 21 home game with Purdue will kick off at 2:30 P.M. and will be televised by ABC.
