Jonathan Taylor run vs. Maryland

Instant recap: Badgers stroll to comfortable victory against Maryland

It's now been 322 days since Wisconsin (4-0 Big Ten, 7-0 overall) lost a game, as it rolled to another easy victory on Saturday, defeating Maryland (1-3 conference, 3-4 overall) 38-13. The Badgers, led by 7 catches for 83 yards from senior tight end Troy Fumagalli, have now won four-straight conference games, overcoming self-inflicted mistakes yet another time this season. Wisconsin wasted no time harrying quarterback Max Bortenschlager, as the sophomore was pressured into an interception to redshirt junior linebacker T.J.

Dontye Carriere-Williams will transfer from program, leaving gaps in experience in the Badger secondary

Carriere-Williams carving out an important role in Wisconsin's secondary

In just his first season of action for the Badgers, redshirt freshman cornerback Dontye Carriere-Williams shouldn’t be considered “the guy” in Wisconsin’s secondary. The Florida native was unknown to most fans coming into the season and listed below UW’s veteran cornerbacks Derrick Tindal and Nick Nelson on the depth chart. But six games into the season, it’s clear that Carriere-Williams has a sizable role in the Wisconsin secondary, effectively serving as the third cornerback and seeing the field in a variety of different packages. “He’s definitely gonna be the guy when we leave,” Tindal said.


Adhering to tradition ensures UW's future

First things first: Wisconsin’s offense needs to get on the same page, the special teams need to fix whatever happened on that punt, the defense needs to stop waiting until their opponent is beyond midfield to start making stops, the mistakes and penalties need to be cut down and Jonathan Taylor needs to be a serious Heisman candidate. Now, let’s talk a little about Camp Randall. Halftime of Saturday’s game featured a triumphant tribute to a century of history at our beloved stadium.

Wisconsin's defense stars against Purdue despite turnover woes on offense

For the first 15 minutes of their 17-9 win over the Purdue Boilermakers (1-2 Big Ten, 3-3 overall), the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0, 6-0) played like an undefeated powerhouse rolling over the rest of their conference opponents. Then, an early second-quarter interception by redshirt sophomore quarterback Alex Hornibrook became the catalyst for three quarters of sloppy football from an offense that left UW looking vulnerable despite their perfect record. Purdue climbed back to make it a one-score game late in the third quarter, and Wisconsin held on.


Wisconsin knocks off Purdue 17-9 in underwhelming performance

On a gloomy Saturday afternoon, more than half of Wisconsin’s student section was still filing into Camp Randall Stadium as freshman running back Jonathan Taylor and the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0 Big Ten, 6-0 overall) opened the floodgates on the Purdue Boilermakers (1-2 Big Ten, 3-3). Taylor, on only Wisconsin’s third play from scrimmage, knifed through the Boilermaker defense, breaking two tackles, for a 67-yard touchdown run.

Improved Boilermakers seek major road upset

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.
