The Badgers welcomed a number of talented freshmen, but there are only a handful that will see the field, let alone play a significant role on the team.
3 Keys to success for each team: Badgers need to take care of business, Chippewas need to hope for perfection
Wisconsin enters Saturdays game unbeaten, and is looking to stay hot. Central Michigan comes in after a big win against an FCS opponent, but haven't proven they can play against top teams.
The No. 16 ranked Wisconsin Badgers (3-1-1) took on the Loyola Ramblers (1-3-1) this Thursday in Chicago. Despite a strong lead in possession and offensive opportunities, the Badgers headed into overtime for their fourth consecutive game, yet this time 110 minutes of play was not enough to decide the victor and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
Expectations for the Central Michigan Chippewas are low, to say the least. Last year, CMU suffered through a 1-11 season that was epitomized by a 51-13 loss to Toledo in their season finale, after which former head coach John Bonamego was fired. The Chippewas went 0-8 in their own Mid-American Conference, with their lone win on the season coming against the University of Maine. CMU’s search to replace Bonamego concluded with the hire of Jim McElwain. McElwain most recently coached wide receivers at the University of Michigan, with previous head coaching stints at Colorado State and Florida.
Strong in the trenches: How offensive and defensive line play propelled Badgers to victory against USF
The Badgers lost a lot of talent on defense last season after D’Cota Dixon, Ryan Connely and T.J. Edwards all graduated. But if anything is clear from UW’s 49-0 win over USF, it’s that Jim Leonhard’s defense can still compete at an elite level.
Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst brought a slightly revamped offense to South Florida last Friday, most notably with the incorporation of Jonathan Taylor into the passing game. Taylor, who led the nation in rushing with 2,194 yards in 2018, had just eight receptions last year. Though the Badgers’ wide receiver unit is solid, adding another aerial weapon in Taylor would make life a lot easier for quarterback Jack Coan in 2019 – and that certainly showed in Week 1.
The No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers (3-1-0) continued their strong start to the season with another exciting home victory in overtime against the Butler Bulldogs (3-1-0), winning by a score of 2-1.
The lightning subsided shortly after 7 p.m. in South Florida, but running back Jonathan Taylor brought his own thunder to Raymond James Stadium Friday night. An explosive performance in both the running and passing game led No. 19 Wisconsin (1-0) to a dominant 49-0 win at South Florida (0-1).
The No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers women’s soccer team (2-1-0) started the season with a difficult two-game road trip in Florida, and returned home with a victory over UCF (0-1-1) and a hard-fought overtime loss against No. 1 rated Florida State (2-1-0).
College football is finally back, and the No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers kick off their season Friday in hot and humid Florida, against the South Florida Bulls.
Elan Koenig has seen a lot during his five year career at Wisconsin.
University of Wisconsin assistant basketball coach Howard Moore was involved in a car accident Saturday in Michigan, tragically killing his wife and daughter, according to the Michigan State Police.
The passing attack was a major disappointment this past football season, and it was a big part of the reason why the Badgers offense struggled to get anything going outside of runs from running back Jonathan Taylor.
One of the least talked-about positional groups in football is the special teams unit, but as the Badgers found out against BYU last fall, a missed field goal can be the difference.
A week after news broke that two of rival Marquette’s leading players were leaving the team, Wisconsin has officially secured a spot as one of the top suitors for the Hauser brothers.
Wisconsin’s brand of football is based on its ability to be stout on the defensive side of the ball, while running the ball behind its loaded offensive line. The offense rode the legs of Jonathan Taylor to 373 yards per game last year, but the Badger defense was not as stellar as most years. The perennial top five defense finished the season ranked 35th nationally in points allowed at 22 per game.
“The most popular man on campus is the backup quarterback.”
The proposed new Natatorium — along with three other UW-Madison projects — has hit a serious road block. On March 20, the Wisconsin State Building Commission voted along party lines, refusing to move forward on a recommendation for each of the 80 projects that are a part of Gov. Tony Evers’ $2.5 billion request for capital budget projects. Each had been unanimously approved in subcommittee meetings earlier in March, but Republicans on the commission voted in opposition to each the projects. Some Republican legislators on the committee have expressed support for some individual projects, but in political protest to Gov. Evers’ request for approximately $2 billion in bonds, refused to even approve those.
Two hours of rain delays weren’t enough to keep No. 21 Wisconsin from earning a series sweep over Iowa Sunday evening at The Goodman softball complex.
