The balanced Bulldogs scored three touchdowns against the Crimson Tide’s top-ranked defense - a fourth came on a blocked field goal - and face a Cornhuskers' defense allowing an average of 26.2 points. Georgia is on pace to set school records in scoring (37.2) and total offense (458.3), and quarterback Aaron Murray leads the nation in pass efficiency. He is the first player in SEC history to throw for 3,000-plus yards in three straight years.

Nebraska features the nation’s eighth-best rushing attack (254.5). Running back Ameer Abdullah (1,089 yards, eight touchdowns), dual-threat quarterback Taylor Martinez (973 rushing yards, 10 TDs) and RB Rex Burkhead (535 yards, 7.2 yards per carry) lead a deep backfield. Georgia just gave up 350 rushing yards to Alabama, and the Tide didn’t do anything fancy. Look for the Cornhuskers to run right at the Bulldogs.

ABOUT WISCONSIN (8-5, 4-4 Big Ten, 6-7 ATS): Ball could not quite match his brilliant 2011 season, when he finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting, but he still piled up 1,730 yards and ran for 21 scores to become the NCAA career leader with 82 touchdowns. He rushed for 202 yards and three touchdowns in a 70-31 drubbing of Nebraska in the Big Ten Conference title game as the Badgers rebounded from back-to-back overtime losses to end the regular season. Ball is not a one-man show in the backfield. James White had 109 yards and four touchdowns and Melvin Gordon added 216 yards on only nine carries as Wisconsin amassed 539 rushing yards against Nebraska. Quarterback Curt Phillips went 2-2 after replacing an injured Joel Stave (collarbone), who hopes to be cleared for the game. Wisconsin's defense ranks 12th nationally versus the run (111.3 yards).

ABOUT STANFORD (11-2, 8-1 Pac-12, 8-5 ATS): The Cardinal also feature a top back in Stepfan Taylor, who ran for 1,442 yards and 12 touchdowns to become the school's all-time leading rusher. Taylor had three straight 100-yard games after Kevin Hogan was inserted as the starting quarterback. Stanford's offense picked up with Hogan as the starter, scoring at least 27 points in four of his five appearances. Hogan completed 72.9 percent of his passes and his mobility added a new dimension to the offense. His top target is star tight end Zach Ertz, who set school records with 66 receptions and 837 yards and had 11 catches in the upset of Oregon. Linebacker Trent Murphy is the leader of a defense that led the nation with 56 sacks and 120 tackles for losses. Ed Reynolds is a big-play safety who intercepted six passes this season and returned three for touchdowns.

Strength vs. strength: Wisconsin's objective is no secret. The Badgers want to run and run some more. Behind All-America running back Montee Ball (133.1 yards per game), change-of-pace backup James White (61.7 yards per game) and upstart freshman Melvin Gordon (216 yards on nine carries against Nebraska), the Badgers average 237.8 yards on the ground, No. 12 nationally. After a slow start to the season triggered in part by several new assistants (including coordinator Matt Canada) and a new quarterback (now Curt Phillips), Wisconsin caught fire late, rushing for a staggering 500-plus yards in two of its last four games. Ball rushed for at least 191 yards in three of his last four outings.

Three keys to a Stanford win:

Find Ertz: TE Zach Ertz has been Stanford's best reciever. His 66 catches is more than double the next-best receiver and at 6-foot-6 he can tower over Wisconsin's linebackers and safeties in the redzone. If Hogan sets the precedent early with Ertz, it should ease the pressure against Stanford's running game, helping Taylor scratch out some more yards.

Suffocate Badger run game: Stanford did it against Oregon (40 carries for 198 yards), it bottled up UCLA's running game in the first meeting (33 carries for 73 yards), and held the Irish to 150 yards on 44 carries. If Stanford's LBs can swarm to the ball carrier as well as they have all season, it will force Wisconsin into a pass-first offense that it's unaccustomed to playing.

Keep Hogan mobile: The freshman's mobility is precisely why coach David Shaw made the switch. His ability to scramble (209 yards on 48 attempts) keeps defenses honest and opens an array of read-options for him and Taylor. Wisconsin hasn't done particularly well against dual-threat QBs this year. It nearly lost to Utah State's spread offense, and Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez ran for almost 250 yards in two games against the Badgers.
