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 […]

Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans Preview

After three weeks of getting to know this team, it is time to finally find out exactly how far the 2016 Wisconsin Badgers football program can go. That all starts with the Big Ten opener this weekend in East Lansing. Check out our full preview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jblPsjPSYMY As well as our full week of Badgers […]

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 […]

Badgers Opposition Research: Scouting the Michigan State Defense

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 […]

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 […]

Wisconsin Football: Five Takeaways From The Akron Win

A week following their thrilling 16-14 victory over SEC power LSU at Lambeau Field, the Badgers came home to Camp Randall Stadium to take on the Akron Zips. Wisconsin is one of the top 10 teams in the country and showed it by dismantling Akron 54-10. It Runs In The Family Wisconsin alumnus J.J. Watt […]

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. However, a few things need to fall into place. http://gty.im/72671224 First of all, it would […]

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. The Wisconsin Badgers did not have that problem. They came out of the gate with fire, running the ball down Akron’s throat […]

Balanced Badgers take care of Akron in 2016 Camp Randall debut

After a big win in Week 1 at Lambeau Field, many wondered if the Wisconsin Badgers would take a step backwards with the Akron Zips coming to Camp Randall Stadium. UW answered those questions in an emphatic manner, taking care of the the visitors 54-10. Wisconsin got the win thanks to a stifling defense and […]

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. […]

Badgers Opposition Research: Scouting the Akron Zips Defense

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 […]

REPORT: Leon Jacobs moving back to inside linebacker

Perhaps this news shouldn’t be surprising given the depth issues at inside linebacker, but our recruiting partners at Badger247 are reporting that former outside and inside linebacker turned fullback will be moving back to inside linebacker for the coming weeks. With starter Chris Orr out for the season, along with the slow return of former […]

Sunday Hangover: Badgers showed mettle in win over LSU

Rarely do season-defining moments appear in the first game of the year. And while only time will tell if Saturday’s statement win over LSU in the Carmex Lambeau Field College Classic was just that, the Wisconsin football team showed a level of mental fortitude that will serve it well as it attempts to navigate a […]

Wisconsin Badgers outlast LSU to take Lambeau Field Classic 16-14

GREEN BAY, WIS – Turnovers have a funny way of telling the story of a football game. That old adage rang true during the Carmex Lambeau Field College Classic on Saturday afternoon.  A pair of Bart Houston interceptions swung a 13-0 Badgers lead to a 14-13 deficit, but it was a fourth quarter Rafael Gaglianone […]
