5/9/14 - If you’re looking for insights on how a team might do in the upcoming season based on their spring scrimmage, the Wisconsin Badgers should have a good kicking game. The only scoring in the Badgers’s Cardinal and White Game was the pair of field goals kicked by Jack Russell for the Cardinal to wrap up drives in the third quarter. Quarterback Tanner McEvoy completed four passes for 55 yards, and Austin Ramesh rushed for 71 yards in two quarters of action. Wisconsin will have a stern test in their season opener in late August when they take on Southeastern Conference powerhouse LSU in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff in Houston.
2/7/14 - The Wisconsin Badgers went 9-4 (6-2 Big Ten) under first-year coach Gary Anderson. The Badgers came close but failed to take the Big Ten Leaders title, earning a ticket to the Capital One Bowl instead, where they lost to South Carolina. Looking to improve upon their #21 ranking, aside from banking four 4-stars (including QB DH Gillins), Gary Andersen and company were focused on bolstering the WR and OL positions, after seniors Chris Borland, Ryan Groy, Jared Abbrederis, Jacob Pedersen, Beau Allen and Dezmen Southward’s departure. Five incoming WRs, including 4-star Dareian Watkins, will reinforce Wisconsin’s already strong offense, now highlighted by RB Melvin Gordon (projected to be the NCAAAF’s leading rusher) with the leave of partner in crime, James White, to the NFL. The Badgers now boast Super Bowl XLVIII’s winning quarterback, Russell Wilson, see how that inspiration will play out for Wisconsin Badgers football this year!
11/20/13 – No. 19 Wisconsin currently sits in second place in the division, one game behind Leaders Ohio State. This season, they’ve outscored opponents 365-140 and their only two losses were determined by a touchdown or less. If you ask Badgers fans, they’d say they should only have one loss to their record after a botched call cost them the game against ASU. Sixth in the country in rushing, seventh in points allowed against them. They are No. 12 in the FBS in total offense and No. 6 in total defense, proving that they are a well-balanced squad. Wisconsin will make its 25th appearance in a postseason bowl game; but first they’ll close the regular season against a No. 25 Minnesota on the road and Penn State for Senior Day at Camp Randall Stadium. A win over the Gophers would give the Badgers their first against a ranked opponent this season and greatly help their chances for a BCS bid.
8/23/13 - The Wisconsin Badgers football team is coming off three straight Big Ten Conference titles and Rose Bowl berths. While the Badgers would like to get back to the Rose Bowl again this season, they prefer it’d be January 6 for the BCS National Championship game.
