Once a moderately successful program known for upsetting top-ranked opponents and producing NFL quarterbacks, Purdue football seems to have lost its way in the last few years.The Boilermakers have never been a conference powerhouse, but their consistent competitiveness — 12 bowl game appearances in 16 years from 1997 to 2012 — stands in stark contrast to their abysmal results under head coach Darrell Hazell: 9-33 overall, with just three conference wins in four years.

Week six of college football was like a buffet as it had a little bit of everything, blowouts, a seven overtime game, upsets and heart pounding last minute drives to decide games.
Alex Hornibrook is not the same quarterback he was a year ago.While he still has improvements to make, as evidenced by the costly interception he threw last Saturday versus Nebraska, there’s certainly a difference between the nervous redshirt freshman that played last season and the sophomore currently starting for the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0 Big Ten, 5-0 overall).“He’s a little quicker with his reads,” said senior tight end Troy Fumagalli.
Another week, another second-half surge by the Badgers. A dominant run game and a characteristically strong defense in the second half erased the memories of a generally dismal first 30 minutes and sent UW to its first 5-0 start since 2011.
The No. 9 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0 Big Ten, 5-0 overall) are known as a slow-and-steady to win the race kind of team, but they needed a little bit more hare than tortoise in their 38-17 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers (2-1, 3-3).It was more from necessity than by choice, though, as the Badgers started off slow and sloppy on both sides of the ball, an all too common trend this season from the leaders of the Big Ten West.Defensively, UW allowed Nebraska to march down the field on its opening drive until Wisconsin had its back against the wall in its own red zone.
No doubt things would have been different last Saturday had Wisconsin’s defensive line not picked up the slack during its sluggish first half against Northwestern.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers come into this game sitting at 3-2 overall, and 2-0 in Big Ten play, giving them a share for first place in the West division.
A week after close calls among playoff contenders, college football revealed its truly elite teams.
Aside from an upset in Minneapolis at the hands of the Maryland Terrapins last Saturday afternoon, the Big Ten had a pretty ho-hum slate of games in week five.
The Wisconsin Badgers are off to a hot start with a 4-0 record (1-0 Big Ten). They have been one of the most talented and well rounded teams in the country, reflected by their ranking of ninth in the Associated Press rankings.
As Wisconsin gets sets to play Nebraska this weekend, here are some important numbers to know: Nebraska allows on average 105.8 yards rushing per game.
Wisconsin continues its run through the Big Ten conference schedule this week as it hits the road to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers (2-0 Big Ten, 3-2 overall). Nebraska, thus far, has defeated Arkansas State, Rutgers and Illinois, while losing to Oregon and Northern Illinois.
As the college football season starts to heat up, here is Morgan Spohn's Heisman rankings:1.
Isaiahh Loudermilk never expected to be here.Not when he was a tall second grader in Chris Haag’s physical education class.Not when he was cutting his teeth playing football at the junior high level.And not even when he starred for West Elk High School when his massive frame and ability started to bring attention to tiny Howard, Kan.No, playing Big Ten football and earning a sack in front of thousands of adulating fans, as he did this past Saturday versus Northwestern, was never part of Loudermilk’s agenda.But that is his reality now.“I wasn’t really planning, when I first started playing football, to get offers or anything like that,” Loudermilk said.
Against Northwestern, in just his fourth-ever start at safety for the No. 9 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0 Big Ten, 4-0 overall), senior Natrell Jamerson recorded his first career interception in the second quarter.He would grab interception number two a couple of hours later, this time managing to stay upright for longer as he rumbled for a 36-yard touchdown, effectively ending the game.“I knew as soon as he got the ball to him he was gone,” said redshirt junior inside linebacker T.J Edwards of his teammate’s return.
Oftentimes, the most consequential moments of your life are the ones you can’t see coming. They come at you out of nowhere, and the fight-or-flight instinct takes over.
The EA sports release of the formerly unreleased gameplay footage of Madden NFL 2018: Commissioner Goodell Edition came out as a slam dunk for the video game production studio.
With just over a minute to play at Camp Randall Stadium, over 80,000 raucous Wisconsin fans watched nervously as Northwestern began a drive from its own 2-yard line, the first of any such late-game drama for the Badgers this season.There were surely flashbacks to UW’s losses to the Wildcats in 2014 and 2015, and collective groans around the stadium as Wisconsin watched a 21-point lead dwindle to just seven.But after a safety forced by senior safety D’Cota Dixon, Wisconsin (1-0 Big Ten, 4-0 overall) eventually triumphed 33-24 over Northwestern (0-1, 2-2) Saturday, as the Badgers made various self-inflicted mistakes, but also got some significant late-game experience.“It was definitely nice,” Dooley said of the game’s squeaky finish.
The Wisconsin Badgers (1-0 Big Ten, 4-0 Overall) cemented their status as a second-half team before a late scare in their 33-24 win over the Northwestern Wildcats (0-1, 2-2).A slow start for UW was magnified by early turnovers, beginning with their first play from scrimmage.
On any given Sunday night, it’s likely you’ll see senior tight end Troy Fumagalli walking down the streets of Madison with a yoga mat, heading to a yin class.
