Traevon Jackson made a contested 3-pointer at the buzzer and finished with 15 points, and No. 22 Wisconsin survived an upset scare from Penn State to win its regular-season finale 63-60 Sunday. The Badgers (21-10, 12-6 Big Ten) went the length of the court with less than 4 seconds left. Jackson pulled up at the wing and made the 3 over the outstretched arm of Kevin Montminy. Officials upheld the basket on the review, and anxious fans at the Jordan Center let out a collective sigh of disappointment. D.J. Newbill had tied the game with 5 seconds left with a jumper. Wisconsin nearly threw the ball away on the ensuing inbounds, but managed to hold on in the scrape on the floor after the officials called a tie-up. Jermaine Marshall finished with 23 points for Penn State (10-20, 2-16). Wisconsin stopped a two-game losing streak that dropped the Badgers out of the Big Ten title race. Poor second-half play doomed them each time in defeats to Purdue and Michigan State. This time, Jacks...

2013 Badgers Spring Football Preview: Quarterbacks

It's been a fun trip through the roster heading into spring, but as the saying goes - we've saved the best for last. That's because we've saved the quarterbacks for last.  No doubt we don't have to tell you about the disaster that was the quarterback position last year, right?

Wide Receiver a big focus as Badgers open spring practice

The lack of production from the wide receiver position in 2012 may have had many reasons. It could've been the inconsistency of having three different quarterbacks, it could've been the inconsistency of the offensive line early on that led to a lack of time to allow players to get open.
