Even in the days of Russell Wilson, Wisconsin football fell apart when it mattered most. 

Mondays with Rasty: Wisconsin's latest loss another in long pattern of heartbreaking defeats on the big stage

The first rule of Wisconsin sports: Never underestimate the team’s ability to build your hopes up and then proceed to shred your soul to smithereens in new and creative ways. Thus was the case on Saturday night in Indianapolis, when the Badgers built up a 28-7 lead, only to see it slowly dissipate as their secondary seemed to forget how to football.


Despite championship loss, Badgers' season one to remember

INDIANAPOLIS — The Wisconsin Badgers’ season ended the same way it started. On the first play against LSU and the last play against Penn State, Bart Houston took the handoff under center, turned left and handed it off right to Corey Clement, with Austin Ramesh leading the way from the backfield. It brought UW’s season full-circle.

Badgers collapse in Indy, succumb to Penn State comeback

INDIANAPOLIS — The Wisconsin Badgers’ wild season came to a screeching halt in Indianapolis, as UW (7-3 Big Ten, 10-3 overall) fell to the Penn State Nittany Lions (9-1, 11-2) in the Big Ten Championship Game at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Badgers took a seemingly comfortable 28-7 lead in the first quarter, but Penn State’s infamous second-half turn-around was in full swing as they fought back to take lead and the conference crown. Wisconsin was able to play its style of football for most of the game, heavily relying on the ground game to control the clock and put points on the board, slowly but surely.


Badgers welcome Gophers seeking 13th-straight victory in Border Battle

The final game of the season has come, and the No. 5 Wisconsin Badgers (6-2 Big Ten, 9-2 overall) are just one win away from a Big Ten Championship appearance, sitting only two places out of the College Football Playoff. Enthusiasm shouldn’t be hard to come by for the Badgers, as Wisconsin takes on the Minnesota Gophers (5-3 Big Ten, 8-3 overall) in the annual Border Battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe.


Turnovers fuel No. 7 Badgers in rout of Fighting Illini

For the first five and a half minutes of the game, the Illinois Fighting Illini (2-5 Big Ten, 3-7 overall) were right in it against the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers (5-2, 8-2). Then UW scored touchdowns on four-straight drives and cruised to a 48-3 win on homecoming night. The game was more-or-less decided by halftime as Wisconsin went to the locker room with a 31-3 lead.


Musso anchors Badger defense despite anonymity

This season, Wisconsin’s defense has been in a constant state of flux. With players getting injured and coming back from injury, and some going from hot to cold in a heartbeat, finding consistency has been difficult. Senior safety Leo Musso, however, has been about as consistent as it gets.
