Week four of the college football season is in our rearview mirror. Believe it or not, that means we are one-third of the way through the regular season. Last year, Robert Griffin III staked claim to the Heisman Trophy on Nov. 19 when he hit a home run strike to Terrance Williams to lead his team to an upset win over the Oklahoma Sooners. Whose name will rise to the top this year by having a "Heisman Moment?"

MADISON, Wis. Now that Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has had time to process his thoughts, he's not even certain he suffered a concussion during last week's game against UTEP."I was just a little dizzy, stumbling after the hit," Ball said. "I feel fine right now."Wisconsin's training staff still pulled Ball from that game for precautionary purposes...
MADISON, Wis. The status of running back Montee Ball for Wisconsin's Big Ten opener against Nebraska remains up in the air. But it appears all that stands between last year's Heisman Trophy finalist and the football field is the successful completion of the team's concussion test.
Badgers coach Bret Bielema indicated that, should Ball pass the necessary cognitive exam...

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace, who is dealing with a shoulder injury, will "try to go" against Alabama on Saturday. Will Colorado defensive lineman Will Pericak be playing in the NFL next year? His coach thinks so. Penn State tight end Paul Jones, who came to PSU as a quarterback, has left the team for personal reasons. The Badgers aren't too concerned about Montee...
Montee Ball was labeled a Heisman favorite this season after Matt Barkley, but Ball has quietly fallen completely off the map.
What on earth has happened to the Badgers?
The better question is just how bad the Big Ten really is?
Well, Wisconsin flat out stinks right now (for their standards and the Big Ten barely better than Big East) because...
The Wisconsin Badgers may be 3-1, although it is not the start that many envisioned to start the 2012 college football season. While they may have lost last year’s Rose Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson to the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL, they thought they had their next top transfer quarterback from the Maryland Terrapins in Danny O’Brien. With Heisman Trophy candidate running...
Last week, as part of the MSF-La Quinta College Football Road Trip, Jerod went to Norman, Oklahoma and saw the Sooners get upset by Kansas State. That trip resulted in this entertaining recap and photo diary.
This week, Jerod heads to Lincoln, Nebraska for the second leg of the La Quinta-sponsored trip to see the #22 Cornhuskers and Wisconsin kick off their 2012 Big Ten conference...
Though I took a little vacation last week, I made sure not to miss a minute of college football. And through the first four weeks of the season we’ve seen some clear themes developing. The first is that, aside from a couple of select teams, no one is safe. Already we’ve witnessed plenty of parity, and more is surely on the way. Alabama and Oregon are working hard on they...

Wisconsin is in panic mode right now. It lost to Oregon State. Overhyped quarterback Danny O'Brien has been benched in favor of Joel Stave. Tailback Montee Ball is dealing with a concussion. What's the best thing that Wisconsin students can do at a time like this?
Make a pathetic "Gangnam Style" parody video, of course.
This is obvious proof Wisconsin...
What is Wisconsin's plan for wide receiver? Should Chris Borland play more at the end due to the injuries? What's the plan for Montee Ball, James White and Melvin Gordon? There are a lot of good football questions to be answered in this week's Badger Nation mailbag.
No. 23 Wisconsin vs. No. 20 Nebraska

Line: Nebraska -11.5
Prepare to see the unthinkable in Lincoln as not only will the Badgers be wearing alternative uniforms, but the Huskers will take to the field in black helmets and scarlet from neck to foot. There’s also a football game taking place, allegedly.

Chalk up another one for realignment. Notre Dame pulled the trigger on pulling out of their extended series with Michigan yesterday, which should come as little surprise with future scheduling agreements with the ACC and a desire to retain rivalries with Navy, USC and Stanford. It was merely a matter of time before this decision was made as Notre Dame looks to find ways to...
