After an injury ended Zack Baun's 2017 season before it started and a disappointing 2018 season, the senior linebacker has played a central role in UW's top-ranked defense in 2019. 

Badgers looking for depleted defense to step up against Michigan to keep season goals within reach

Following their 24-21 loss to BYU, T.J. Edwards and other Badgers players declared that all their preseason goals were still achievable and right there in front of them. Now, those goals will be put on the line Saturday night, as the No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers (2-0, 4-1) travel to Ann Arbor for a showdown with the No. 12 Michigan Wolverines (3-0, 5-1) under the lights.

Senior running back Taiwan Deal was one of three UW backs to run for over 70 yards and collected a 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

UW's run game wore down Nebraska en route to 41-24 win

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.

Outside linebacker Zach Baun has been the most productive linebacker for the Badgers early this year.

Badgers take down Huskers 41-24 to retain Freedom Trophy

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.

UW defensive lineman Henningsen earns scholarship

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.
