CBS Sports labels Wisconsin as a potential surprise contender in the college football playoffs

According to CBS Sports, the University of Wisconsin is considered to be a strong contender for the college football playoffs. The review of the major conferences led to the selection of the Badgers as the team to watch out for in the Big Ten. There are several reasons to be optimistic about the Wisconsin team in the 2023 season, including a new quarterback in Tanner Mordecai, who has proven himself successful in college, and a new head coach in Luke Fickel, who has been to the college football playoffs once in Cincinnati, and is joined by a rookie staff.

CBS Sports also reviewed other dark horse contenders in each major conference and provided their thoughts for each team. In the ACC, North Carolina has a promising new quarterback in Brennan Armstrong, who was actually linked to Wisconsin on the transfer portal. Big 12 team Texas Tech, now under the leadership of new head coach Joey McGuire, aims to beat the conference giants in 2023. In the Pac 12, Oregon State University is poised for success with the addition of transferred quarterback DJ Wiagalerei. Finally, in the SEC, Auburn hopes to run like Cinderella in the 2023 season with new head coach Hugh Freeze.
