Quintez Cephus vs Utah State

Roundtable: Reflection on Wisconsin's first three games

Questions 1) What has been the biggest surprise for the Badgers this season? 2) What is the area in which the Badgers need to improve the most? 3) What is your bold prediction for the rest of the season? Jake 1) After arriving to spring camp at the bottom of the Badgers’ depth chart, running back Jonathan Taylor has seemingly been vaulted into the feature back role for Paul Chryst’s team.

Alex Hornibrook had a record-setting day via the air, completing 18 of his 19 pass attempts in Wisconsin's blowout win over BYU.

Record-setting performance by Alex Hornibrook carries Wisconsin to 40-6 win over BYU

Last week against FAU, Alex Hornibrook watched Jonathan Taylor enter the Wisconsin record books with 223 yards as a true freshman running back. Evidently, the redshirt sophomore quarterback wanted his own name etched in stone by the No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0 Overall) as Saturday afternoon, BYU (1-3) ended up on the wrong side of an historic performance in a 40-6 contest. Hornibrook could seemingly do no wrong as he set a Wisconsin school record for completion percentage in a game at 94.7 percent in what was clearly the best game of his young career. He was actually accurate on 100 percent of his 19 pass attempts, completing 18 of them for 256 yards and four touchdowns, as his lone incompletion came when a pass was dropped by true freshman wide receiver Danny Davis in the first quarter to keep him short of statistical perfection. And while it was a nearly flawless performance from the young quarterback, he also had quite a bit of help to get him through it.


Current UW outside linebackers strive to emulate former Badger greats

This past weekend, T.J. Watt recorded two sacks, seven tackles and an interception. In the same game, Joe Schobert recorded nine combined tackles before Jonathan Casillas had two solo tackles of his own later that night. Watt, Schobert and Casillas will always be Badgers, but make no mistake, these outside linebackers now play their football on Sundays, providing an example to No. 100 Wisconsin’s (2-0) current unit of what they can achieve in the future. “That was my roommate three years ago,” said fifth-year senior outside linebacker Leon Jacobs on his former teammate Watt.
