After two dominant wins to open their season, the Wisconsin Badgers suffered their first setback in a 17-7 defeat against Northwestern on Nov. 21. Quarterback Graham Mertz struggled mightily in Wisconsin's loss, completing 23-of-41 pass attempts for 230 yards and three interceptions. The Week 14 college football odds from William Hill Sportsbook lists No. 16 Wisconsin as a 14-point favorite at home against No. 12 Indiana, who will turn to quarterback Jack Tuttle due to Michael Penix Jr.'s knee injury. Wisconsin enters Saturday's Big Ten battle having won 10 consecutive meetings against the Hoosiers.

Top Week 14 college football predictions
One of the top Week 14 college football picks the model is recommending: No. 6 Florida (-17.5) covers on the road against Tennessee in a 3:30 p.m. ET SEC on CBS matchup. The Gators have won five in a row by 16 or more points and have gone 3-1-1 against the spread during that span. Tennessee, meanwhile, has dropped five straight and has failed to cover in all those games.
The Gators have also won 14 of their last 15 against Tennessee and have blown the Vols out by 26 or more points in their last two meetings. The simulations show Heisman candidate Kyle Trask throwing for well over 300 yards for the Gators. They pick up the cover in over 60 percent of simulations. The under (62.5), meanwhile, hits 60 percent of the time.
Purdue limps into Saturday's contest having lost three straight games. Despite their recent losing skid, the Boilermakers have found their offensive prowess, scoring 30 or more points in three of their last four outings. Purdue has a lot of talent at receiver and is also getting good production from running back Zander Horvath, who is coming off a strong performance against Rutgers, a game in which he rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown. He's eclipsed the 100 yard rushing mark three times already this season, and he's averaging over five yards per carry.
Nebraska, meanwhile, has struggled mightily against Big Ten opponents. In fact, the Cornhuskers are 1-5 in their last six conference games. In addition, Nebraska is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games against Purdue. SportsLine's model shows Horvath averaging 4.5 yards per carry against Nebraska's rush defense, which is giving up over 200 yards per game on average, resulting in Purdue covering the spread in nearly 60 percent of simulations.
