Despite injury, Jeff Duckworth shines under bright lights

MADISON, Wis. -- Jeff Duckworth won't disclose how far from 100 percent he actually feels these days. The bulging discs in his lower back surfaced a couple of years ago, and he never knows the excruciating pain levels he'll feel when he wakes up each morning. "The only thing I can really get done is a fusion, which I don't want to do," Duckworth said. "...

Officials from Wisconsin-ASU game reprimanded by Pac-12

MADISON, Wis. -- In the aftermath of the most controversial loss this college football season, all Gary Andersen could stress was accountability.

After bizarre loss, Wisconsin focuses on Purdue

No. 24 Wisconsin is trying to move past an excruciating and bizarre loss, and focus on its Big Ten opener against Purdue.

The Pac-12 issued a statement Monday acknowledging the errors by its officiating...

He would be celebrated across the nation as the FBS active career leader among tailbacks for rushing yards and touchdowns. In other words, he would earn...

Badgers predictions: Game 4 vs. Purdue

Big Ten season begins for Wisconsin this Saturday, but this week's predictions are similar to what we saw in the Badgers' first two weeks - namely everyone picking UW to win. Shouldn't be a surprise, of course, as Wisconsin is a 24-point favorite over Purdue. Have a feeling next week's picks will be a lot different. But until then, here's the predictions from...
