Badgers Exorcize Spartans Demons in 30-6 Victory

Spartans Stadium has been a bit of a nightmare for the Wisconsin Badgers, but the 2016 team more than exorcized those demons in a 30-6 victory over Michigan State on Saturday afternoon. The Badgers simply dominated the Spartans from start to finish in UW’s most dominant Big Ten road win in some time. In fact, […]

REPORT: Badgers Will Start Corey Clement at Running Back vs. MSU

The mystery at running back for the Wisconsin Badgers vs. Michigan State appears to be solved. At least according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, who is reporting that senior running back Corey Clement will make his return to action after missing last week’s game against Georgia State. Clement was last seen in the Akron game, where […]

Barry Alvarez admits to mistake in Badgers hiring of Gary Andersen

Gary Andersen — the name brings up some pretty intense feelings amongst Badger fans. It is also perhaps the biggest blemish on a stellar coaching and athletic director reputation that Barry Alvarez has built up at the University of Wisconsin (the decline of the hockey program aside). Winning three Big Ten championships in less than […]

Earlier this week we took a look inside the Michigan State Spartans offense, noting its strengths and what the keys to Badgers success against them would be. Now it is time to understand MSU’s defense and take a look at how Wisconsin can find a way to win on this side of the ball. Let’s […]

Badgers enter Michigan State Game Hoping for Miracle at Running Back

Wisconsin vs. Michigan State — it is supposed to be a sloberknocker and the most physical game of the 2016 season. Except that it might not exactly happen that way thanks to a Wisconsin Badgers backfield in a state decimated by injury. The Badgers will come into the game against the Spartans with question marks […]

University of Wisconsin wrestling coach Barry Davis announced Tuesday that his team will forgo its annual intrasquad scrimmage this season. “We will be using the performance at the early season tournaments to determine who will be representing the Badger Team during the dual meet season,” Davis said in his weekly “Tuesdays with Barry” newsletter. “It […]

Badgers Wrestling Notebook: Brandvold promoted to associate head coach

The Wisconsin wrestling team announced Monday that assistant coach Trevor Brandvold has been promoted to associate head coach.

Can Bradrick Shaw be the answer to Wisconsin Badgers run game issues?

Tell us if you’ve heard this story before — Corey Clement is out injured, Taiwan Deal has issues with his ankles and lower legs and Dare Ogunbowale has yet to breakout. One would think we were about talking last season. Instead, a lack of health at running back has created an opportunity that may not […]

REPORT: Badgers to start Alex Hornibrook at QB against Spartans

Big Ten play is upon us, and after Saturday’s way-too close 23-17 victory over Georgia State a move to spark the offense appears to have been made. That’s because a report from Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel names a pair of sources within the team as telling him it will be Hornibrook as the […]

Badgers escape Georgia State 23-17 in non-conference finale

Stats never lie, except for when they do…and as the supposed worst defense in all of FBS football rolled in to Camp Randall Stadium it was supposed to be a cake walk for Bucky. Instead, it was a four-quarter struggle to put points on the board, as UW escaped its non-conference finale with an unexpectedly […]

It will take more time to type this piece out than it likely did for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program to sell out its student section for the 2016-17 season. That’s because it took all of three minutes for the student section tickets to be gone. With the likes of Nigel Hayes, Ethan […]

Will College Gameday come to Wisconsin-Michigan State?

With Wisconsin ranked 9th and Michigan State ranked 12th in the latest AP Poll, there is a very good chance College GameDay will head to East Lansing in Week 4 to attend their second Wisconsin Football game of the season.

Sunday Hangover: Badgers get possessive in blowout win

Dominating the Time of Possession has long been the trademark of a healthy Wisconsin offense. The Badgers took that to a new level in Saturday’s 54-10 trouncing of Akron at Camp Randall Stadium. Wisconsin held the ball for a whopping 40:52 of the game, the longest time of possession for the Badgers in the Paul […]

Wisconsin Football Positional Report Card vs Akron

On what was supposed to be a quiet day of college football, upset scares were aplenty. Clemson and Georgia each narrowly avoided upsets against cupcakes, while Oklahoma State lost to a MAC underdog.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Akron Zips: Preview, Predictions and Prognostications

We’re experimenting a bit with our preview for football this season…this week we give you a look (an actual look) at Wisconsin vs. Akron. Please let us know if you like, love, hate or anything in between as our Andy Coppens previews all things Akron at Wisconsin in Week 2 of the 2016 season.

Akron Game Week Opposition Research: 

Scouting the Akron Offense
Scouting the Akron Defense

However, our other staff members have their own opinions after everyone lost last weekend and is 0-1 to start the season in our prediction pool. Let’s take a look at what the staff believes will happen this week.

Other Staff Predictions:

Nate Woelfel: Wisconsin 42, Akron 10

Even off a huge win, I don’t see the Badgers overlooking the Zips. I had a hard time spotting Akron even 10 points considering the UW defense only allowed one offensive touchdown last week. However, I could see some points floating the vistors’ way during garbage time.

Sawyer Bock: Wisconsin 38, Akron 10

Clement and Dare run all over Akron and the defense remains one of the best in the country

Rayan Vatti: Wisconsin 28, Akron 17

There are a lot of people worried that Wisconsin might start slow after such a huge win last week, and that does have some merit. Akron does have a good passing game, and they will test Wisconsin’s inexperienced secondary early and often. At the end of the day though, Corey Clement and Wisconsin’s rushing attack will be too much to handle.

Wisconsin Badgers Football: 5 Areas to Improve On Against Akron

Week one’s game between the Wisconsin Badgers and the LSU Tigers will not be examined by NCAA films at the end of the season. It was ugly. There were six combined turnovers, and the two teams completed fewer than 60 percent of their passes. Wisconsin escaped with the victory, which is really all that matters. […]

We continue our look in to the Akron Zips, the opponent that will be across from the Wisconsin Badgers in its Camp Randall debut for the 2016 season. Yesterday it was a look at the Akron offense, now it is time to look at the other side of the ball. Can UW get back on […]

Badgers Opposition Research: Scouting the Akron Offense

Last week the Wisconsin Badgers went to its home away from home, getting the first ever regular season victory over a SEC opponent. The 16-14 victory over LSU sent shockwaves throughout college football, if for no other reason than UW’s ability to hold star running back Leonard Fournette largely in check. While that win was […]
