1. Get receivers involved early: UW’s passing game has been pedestrian all season, averaging 162.1 yards per game, second-to-last in the Big Ten and ahead of only Illinois. But the times it was most efficient was when UW passed on early downs, using play-action and quick throws to take advantage of defenses looking for run plays — early in the matchup against Iowa was the best example of this. Against a secondary without two of its key starters, and a defense without disruptive linebacker Darien Butler, UW should be able to get receivers Danny Davis, Chimere Dike and Kendric Pryor freed up. Quarterback Graham Mertz just has to be accurate and give them chances with the ball.
