247Sports thinks Wisconsin is the early favorite to win the Big 10 West in 2021.

The popular sports publication posted a preview of the upcoming season for the B1G, and it sounds like the Badgers are expected to roll. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

247Sports wrote the following:

Wisconsin should be the favorite to return to the top of the West with plenty of returning pieces on defense and a healthy Mertz at quarterback to throw to receiver Chimere Dike.

Being the favorite in the Big 10 West is the bare minimum that fans expect every year. If everything goes wrong and the wheels fall off, I still expect to dominate the B1G West.

There’s not a single team on our side of the conference that I’m worried about.

Heading into 2021, we return the majority of our starters, Graham Mertz will have another offseason of development and we’re bringing in a great recruiting class.

With Paul Chryst in control of the reins, I have complete and total confidence that we’re going to be just fine.

2020 was a disappointing campaign consumed by chaos. Now, it’s time to get back to what Wisconsin football is all about. Winning games and dominating the B1G!
