By the end of the contest, he had racked up 94 rushing yards, including a 54-yard burst in the third quarter which led to a touchdown. With Kendricks' additional 21 yards receiving head coach Bret Bielema was impressed with his overall play.

McGwire has chance to redeem legacy

The Phillies-Yankees World Series matchup is without a doubt intriguing. The teams boast a pair of frightening lineups and stellar rotations. The Phillies are trying to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since 1999 and 2000. Ironically, this was the last time the Yankees were crowned champions.

Time for hockey to return to glory

The mantle for Badger athletics is usually carried by football and basketball, two sports that have a certain style to them. Both have an aura of teams that boast less talent than top foes, but can hang with the best due to strong fundamentals, good coaching and a slow-paced, disciplined approach. Furthermore, neither sport was considered a powerhouse in any fashion before 1990, and since have been seen as spunky overachievers.


Defensive duo leads the way

Defensive duo leads the way

Seniors Chris Maragos and O'Brien Schofield are leading an improved Wisconsin defense this season. Both are enjoying career years. Maragos leads the Badgers in interceptions with three, including one to secure the victory over Fresno State. Schofield has racked up 6.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for loss while getting national attention for his skills. While the defensive is prone to struggle to stay strong all game, the leadership of Maragos and Schofield is the key to this squad's success.

Behind Geoffrion, power play threatening

When an opponent goes into the penalty box and a two-minute one-man advantage is given to the Badgers, senior center Blake Geoffrion and the rest of the Wisconsin power-play unit have one thing in mind: put the puck in the back of the net. Through the first two weekends of the regular season, Geoffrion has already tallied three goals, and they have all come on the power play.
