Badgers win at Northwestern for first time since 1999

It was not a pretty win, but the Wisconsin Badgers (4-2 Big Ten, 7-2 Overall) held off the Northwestern Wildcats (3-3, 4-5) for a 21-7 victory in Evanston, Ill. Wisconsin’s offense struggled to finish drives throughout the game, frequently ending up in Northwestern territory without touchdowns to show for it.

Shaw shining in shadow of Clement

The No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers (3-2 Big Ten, 6-2 overall) are through the most treacherous section of their regular season, and the team fared far better than many would have expected coming into the fall. But with November here and a trip to Northwestern next on the schedule, the Badgers aren’t quite out of the autumn woods.

Ogunbowale's historic night carries Badgers over No. 7 Cornhuskers

Overlooked in the Wisconsin Badgers’ (3-2 Big Ten, 6-2 overall) ugly overtime win over the No. 7 Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-1, 7-1) was a historic performance by redshirt senior running back Dare Ogunbowale. The backup only carried the ball 11 times, but his 10.9-yard average for 120 total yards on those runs was the highest per-carry average for a Wisconsin running back in a game (min.

Badgers upset No. 7 Nebraska in overtime barnburner

While not as highly anticipated as Wisconsin’s night game against Ohio State two weeks ago, and while the matchup Nebraska felt similar to that OSU game, this time Wisconsin held on to beat a Top 10 team, winning 23-17. Wisconsin opened up the scoring halfway through the first with a two-play, 51-yard drive capped off by a 21-yard rush by redshirt freshman running back Bradrick Shaw.

Teams back from the dead

Penn State After a 2-2 start that included a 49-10 loss to Michigan, Penn State has risen from the depths of the Big Ten cellar with three straight wins and an upset victory over the vaunted Ohio State Buckeyes.


Wisconsin consistently finds "diamonds in the rough," as exemplified by turning T.J. Watt, who's national recruiting rank was 941, into a first round draft pick.

Badgers welcome Armstrong Jr., Nebraska to bright lights of Camp Randall

The lights at Camp Randall will be fired back up for the second time in three weeks as the No. 7 Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-0 Big Ten, 7-0 overall) come to town to take on the No. 11 Wisconsin Badgers (2-2 Big Ten, 5-2 overall) in a matchup that could have championship implications. With the Badgers showing two marks in their loss column, they will need to win this game to keep the pressure on Nebraska, which travels to Ohio next week to take on the talented Buckeyes.

Defense suffocates, offense struggles in Badgers' win over Hawkeyes

The Wisconsin Badgers’ defense knew it had to get back on track after allowing a season-high 30 points last week, and Saturday was mission accomplished as UW (2-2 Big Ten, 5-2 overall) held the Iowa Hawkeyes (3-2, 5-3) out of the endzone in a 17-9 victory in Iowa City to reclaim the Heartland Trophy. Justin Wilcox’s defense is a group that won’t be satisfied with allowing nine points, but the way they shut down senior quarterback C.J. Beathard and the Iowa offense left little to complain about.
