On July 9th, Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren announced that all Big Ten schools will play a conference-only football schedule in 2020. Many have speculated this is the first step to cancelling the upcoming season, but we’ll remain optimistic and assume the Badgers play their full conference slate for the purpose of this article.

Alright. Before this gets not fun, let’s take a minute to remember some great moments we’ve had in Badger sports over the last year or so.
It was announced Thursday that Badger lineman Cole Van Lanen was named a part of the Walter Camp preseason All-American First Team. He joins Iowa's Keith Duncan and Ohio State's Wyatt Davis as the only Big Ten players on the first-team offense.
They’ve done it again.
The 2020 NFL Draft came and passed this weekend — albeit under undeniably bizarre circumstances. The coronavirus pandemic forced the draft to be conducted virtually, which meant commissioner Roger Goodell was announcing selections in casual sweaters, in his basement, rather than in a suit on a stage.
Looking to increase their draft stock, four departing Badger football players recently traveled to Lucas Oil Stadium for the NFL Combine. With their talents on full display in front of team scouts and owners, these select Badgers represented Wisconsin proudly — here’s a brief look at how they performed.
As per usual, Wisconsin’s football organization is budding with NFL caliber talent, and with the Super Bowl comeback of Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs now a distant memory, the NFL Draft is on everyone’s mind. Hoping to replicate the NFL success of past Badgers such as Russel Wilson or JJ Watt, many of Wiscosin’s best players will soon become professionals. Let’s take a look at where these Wisconsin Badgers may land in the NFL draft.
Uncharacteristic mistakes cost Badgers a Rose Bowl win, extending Wisconsin's Rose Bowl losing streak
They really should have won.
For a class of seniors and team that has achieved so much, it’s tough to watch the 2019-20’ Badgers fall short of putting the ultimate icing on the cake and coming away with a win in the Rose Bowl. The script that was followed was familiar for Wisconsin, and one that spelled trouble for them earlier in the season as well.
It’s New Year’s Eve, which means we’re just one day away from the 106th edition of the Rose Bowl Game between the No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers (10-3, 7-3 Big Ten) and the No. 6 Oregon Ducks (11-2, 8-1 Pac-12). Here’s a couple of things to know before the teams kick off in Pasadena, California tomorrow afternoon:
On December 2nd, 2018, just over a year ago, Wisconsin had been announced as participants in the Pinstripe Bowl following a disappointing 7-5 regular season.
Wisconsin may have lost a heartbreaker to Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship, but there is plenty for Badger fans to cheer for
A week after the Badgers got a crack at the Golden Gophers after last years drubbing, Wisconsin had another shot for redemption, but this time against the Buckeyes with a Big Ten title on the line.
We have already seen this matchup.
Quintez Cephus made sure to make the most of Axe week and the matchup against rival Minnesota.
On Oct. 26, the Wisconsin Badgers posed no more of a threat to the Ohio State Buckeyes than any other team on the Buckeyes’ schedule to that point, and the Badgers got romped to a 38-7 final. So, when the Badgers take the field this Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis with a Big Ten Championship on the line, their opponent, the still-undefeated Buckeyes, will have no shortage of confidence.
A year ago, around this time, Jack Coan wasn’t under center yet. He wasn’t taking snaps in front of a deflated Camp Randall crowd watching their Wisconsin Badgers fall to Minnesota for the first time in 15 seasons. Yet, from the sidelines, he and his teammates experienced the gravity of a loss that would hang on their backs for the next twelve months.
Bring on all the boat-related puns and all the different ways that they can sink.
P.J. Fleck ended his post-game press conference earlier in the day with the words “Boiler Up,” but the Minnesota Golden Gophers would receive no favors from Purdue on Saturday.
Wisconsin’s last home game of the season vs Purdue is a must-win game for the Badgers, as is every game for the rest of the season if they want a chance to beat out Minnesota for the Big Ten West. Purdue is struggling with a record of 4-6, but are coming off of back-to-back wins.
