UW-Madison released its 2018 TV spot during Saturday’s football game, featuring themes of challenge and achievement.
The No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0 Big Ten, 4-1 overall) kept their winning streak against the struggling Nebraska Cornhuskers (0-3, 0-5) alive — and compounded the Huskers misery — with a steady 41-24 win Saturday night. Nebraska’s head coach Scott Frost has seen his team struggle since taking over, and he praised the Badgers’ discipline heading into the game partly because his team had been undisciplined.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers (0-3 Big Ten, 0-5 overall) came into Madison without a victory since Oct. 28, 2017, including an opening four losses in 2018 under new head coach Scott Frost. The Cornhuskers’ trip to Camp Randall changed none of that as they fell to the Wisconsin Badgers (2-0 Big Ten, 4-1 overall) 41-24.
Nebraska (0-2 Big Ten, 0-4 overall) and No. 16 Wisconsin (1-0, 3-1) are on opposite paths as the Huskers head into Camp Randall for a Big Ten rivalry game on Saturday night.
With a No. 35 preseason ranking and a new local hero as their head coach, much was to be expected of Nebraska in the 2018 season.
There is nothing better to do during a bye week than dive into statistics and make rash assumptions with them.
Scott, Frost-trated Another week, another loss for new Nebraska Head Coach Scott Frost. Coming off a frustrating 56-10 loss at Michigan a week prior, the Cornhuskers headed back home in week five still searching for their first victory.
Wisconsin: Let Hornibook Work: Although the “is-Alex-Hornibrook-good-debate?” rivals that of “Coke or Pepsi,” the Badgers would do right to put the ball in their quarterback’s hands.
In their first conference game of the season, the Badgers (1-0 Big Ten, 3-1 overall) would continue to be challenged, and absolutely could not afford a loss to start Big Ten play, and more importantly a game against Iowa.
When Wisconsin began its season against Western Kentucky on Aug. 31, tight end Jake Ferguson wasn’t listed on the two-deep depth chart. And with the Badgers preparing to play Nebraska more than a month later, he’s still not there.
In their thrilling 28-17 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Badgers saved their Big Ten title hopes with smart coaching and veteran leadership late in the game.
“If you’re dead weight, you can get off the ship,” senior fullback Alec Ingold said. “But we’re going to keep moving forward.” That was the message inside the Wisconsin locker room following their humbling 24-21 loss to BYU.
For most on the Badgers’ football roster, this past week was focused on rebounding from their disappointing loss to BYU and preparing to open their Big Ten schedule against rival Iowa. For redshirt freshman defensive lineman Matt Henningsen, that week started with a surprise. UW announced last Monday that junior kicker Zach Hintze and Henningsen — both of whom joined the Badgers as walk-ons — earned scholarships.
With a weekend of close, heart-pounding night games and some huge blowouts in the afternoon, you might have missed the full, beautiful tapestry of college football. Don’t worry, I’m here to fill you in on all the stuff that “mattered” from week four.
IOWA CITY, IOWA — Trailing 17-14 with 5:40 left in the game, a leg up in the Big Ten West and the fate of their season on the line, a Wisconsin offense that struggled to find a rhythm all night needed to go 88 yards to win the game. Alex Hornibrook did just that.
IOWA CITY – Coming off a shocking upset at the hands of the BYU Cougars, the Wisconsin Badgers had to bounce back and focus on a pivotal early season rivalry game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The No. 18 Badgers (1-0 Big Ten, 3-1 overall) defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes (0-1, 3-1) 28-17, but it was less a game, more an old Ali-Frazier boxing match with both teams trading blows consistently throughout the night.
It's gonna be alright: Processing Wisconsin's loss to BYU and how the Badgers can still make the playoffBy Nick Baumann | Sep. 21, 2018
It felt like everything would work out. Sure, Wisconsin had been beaten on both sides of the ball throughout the game, but they couldn’t lose to BYU at Camp Randall.
With junior receiver A.J. Taylor impressing so far this season, Wisconsin is looking for another wideout to step up and help out junior quarterback Alex Hornibrook. Danny Davis is the guy.
