The No. 25 ranked Wisconsin Badgers will travel to play against the Illinois Fighting Illini on Saturday.
At 4-2 Wisconsin has shown both the good and bad this season they hope for more of the former as they play against a 3-2 Illinois team this weekend.
Coverage of the game between Wisconsin and Illinois will air on the Big Ten Network beginning at 8:00 pm ET from Memorial Stadium...
What does a guy have to do to get a little respect around here these days?
That's got to be what's going through the mind of Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave these days, because it seems to matter very little what results are...some in the Badger fan base will find fault with anything he doesn't do perfectly.
Don't believe me? Let us take a stroll down...
MADISON, Wis. -- Kyle French lost more than his starting kicking job when he missed a 38-yard field goal wide left against Northwestern last week. Apparently, he also will lose his scholarship.
French, a redshirt junior from Menomonee Falls, Wis., posted on his Facebook page Thursday night that he would not be back with the team for his senior season.

The learning curve is getting easier at Wisconsin.
The 25th-ranked Badgers feel they're hitting their stride after a dominant win, and they'll look to stay focused for a potentially tricky trip to Champaign on Saturday night to face Illinois.
Coach Gary Andersen switched to a 3-4 scheme and installed new packages in his first year in Madison. It's been a learning process...
When a starting linebacker is also named the field goal specialist for kicks longer than 45 yards, you just know there are going to be some jokes in response. Last night, Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen announced that the Badgers will be using linebacker Chris Borland on long field goal tries – a move that, needless to say, is interesting. The team is moving away from using Kyle...
Melvin Gordon rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 25 Wisconsin to a 56-32 rout of Illinois on Saturday.
Gordon topped 1,000 yards for the season on a 13-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that put the Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) up 42-17. He finished the chilly, 40-degree night with 1,012 yards for the season.

It has been nearly three years since the Wisconsin football team won a road game against a ranked opponent.
On Oct. 23, 2010, Wisconsin defeated Iowa, 31-30, in Iowa City. However, it’s worth noting that the Badgers were ranked No. 10 at the time, and the Hawkeyes were ranked No. 13.

He's been broken and rebuilt many times in his five years with the program, but senior linebacker Ethan Armstrong is a big reason why Wisconsin's defense is one of the best in the country.
