Week four of the college football season has only intensified an already extremely close heisman race. Tua Tagovailoa remains the favorite, but the contenders behind him are certainly pushing to narrow the gap. Below are my top four contenders for the Heisman.
We are now well into the college football season, and it’s been a fun year so far. Week 4 saw the continued dominance of a national powerhouse, Ohio State, and the continued downfall of another, in Michigan.
Wisconsin is coming off a dominant win against Michigan, where they showed the college football world they could contend for the College Football Playoff. Northwestern has been disappointing to say the least after winning the Big Ten West last year. Here are the keys for each to win Saturday afternoon.
A slow start to the season for the Northwestern Wildcats (1-2 overall, 0-1 Big Ten) and reigning Big Ten West champions has them tied with Rutgers and Purdue with the worst record in the Big Ten.
Last season, Wisconsin’s passing offense was anemic. Quarterback Alex Hornibrook couldn’t make simple plays and his receivers couldn’t find any separation. Running back Jonathan Taylor still had success but faced defenses that knew the Badgers would only throw out of necessity.

Wisconsin had its way in the first two weeks, outscoring their opponents 110-0. The two teams they played went a combined 8-17 in 2018 and both went 0-6 in their last six games.
After fourteen days off, football is back in Madison. The nation's eyes will be on Camp Randall Stadium as No. 13 Wisconsin (2-0) takes on No. 11 Michigan (2-0) in the Big Ten’s biggest week four matchup.
As the season draws on, the Badgers are beginning to look more and more like a top 10 team in the country. Since its our duty to cover the Badgers, it’s now our duty to cover the other top teams in the country.
Michigan has had one of the more interesting schedules in the Big Ten this year, getting wins against “cupcake” Middle Tennessee, and then against an underrated but manageable Army team. This weekend they will put their mettle to the test against the Badgers in Madison.
Following another dominant performance for Wisconsin, a 61-0 win over Central Michigan followed by a bye week, the Badgers now face their first true test of the 2019 season.
Believe it or not, college football still happened despite the fact that the Badgers didn’t play. So while most of my colleagues had lives and did other things, I was on my couch all day watching college football. Let’s recap an odd afternoon!
With the departure of Wisconsin’s quarterback Alex Hornibrook, a new leader has emerged early in the 2019-20’ season, and surprisingly it is not star running back Jonathan Taylor.
If the Badgers want to avenge their 38-13 blowout loss to Michigan last year, they’ll have to do two things perfectly: maintain possession and get stops on early downs.
Michigan and Wisconsin both have postseason dreams on the line Saturday when they face off in Camp Randall. Here are the keys for each team to win.
“He just felt different,” said junior wide receiver Kendric Pryor when describing junior quarterback Jack Coan compared to last season. He said there was a visible difference in his confidence and the way he led the offense through two convincing wins to start the 2019 season.
There was visible excitement and emotion shown from the Badgers after their dominant performance for a second straight week, and the team had all the reason to be ecstatic.
Central Michigan (1-0) and No. 17 Wisconsin (1-0), two programs that have been playing football since before the turn of the 20th century, will face off for the first time in history Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall.
Through eight quarters of football, No. 17 Wisconsin’s defense has yet to allow a single point. They put together another dominant performance Saturday afternoon, as Wisconsin (2-0) defeated Central Michigan (1-1) 61-0 in the Badgers’ home opener at Camp Randall Stadium.
Editor’s note: College football is nothing without its fans, and its fans are nothing without their passion. In an attempt to capture that unique intensity and Overreactability, we’ve asked washed-up sports editor and Southerner Bremen Keasey to give us a weekly breakdown of college football happenings around the country like only a true fan could.
