Bulldogs Aim to Tighten Up Their Game

Fresno, CA "This will be good film for us, especially for our offensive line to look at," said Hill. "I don't think we physically matched up well with Wisconsin last year."

Fresno State found the end zone just once in last season's 13-10 home-opening loss, and Coach Hill says he still thinks about missed opportunities that could have changed the outcome.

"They out-executed us in critical situations, and in a 13-10 football game, there's going to be some critical plays. Wisconsin made the plays last year, and we didn't."

And that game was played in front of a friendly Bulldog Stadium crowd. That won't be the case come Saturday in the Badgers' raucous 80,000-seat Camp Randall Stadium.

"You gotta handle the noise," Hill said. "You've gotta be able to handle the checks at the line of scrimmage. You need to get in a rhythm. Sometimes that stuff will get on you."

Coach Hill plans to practice Tuesday and Wednesday with speakers blaring band music on the field to help get his Bulldogs ready for the hostile environment in Madison.

"That's a great atmosphere for football. Their place will be packed. It will be rockin'. It'll be fun. It'll be a lot of fun."
