Champs of the Week1.     Marqise Lee, WR, USC- 345 receiving yards, 2 TD’sLee literally did everything he could possibly do to help USC survive the upset against Arizona, but 16 catches for 345 yards and two scores was still not enough to get past the Wildcats. In addition, Lee had a couple big returns on special teams that allowed him to finish with 469 all-purpose yards in the game. Those 345 yards receiving broke the Pac-12 record for yards in a single game. Despite the attention garnered nationally by Robert Woods, it’s actually Lee that leads the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns by a wide margin.2.     Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson- 428 passing yards, 5 TD’sIt was a record-setting night for Boyd and the Clemson offense as they torched Wake Forest on Thursday night. Boyd threw for a school record 428 passing yards and five touchdowns in the rout. The bigger news for many Clemson fans was that the Boyd-Watkins connection finally got on track as Watkins also set records with 202 ...

Badgers season reaches stumbling block

Nothing comes easily for this Wisconsin football team, does it? Just when it appears the Badgers have turned around their season for the better, a game like Saturday comes along and smacks them in the face.

Michigan State @ Wisconsin Recap: Offensive Frustration, Futility, And Functionality

Through three quarters of football this game looked entirely like every other disheartening game we have had to endure this season. The defense was doing everything it could to keep the team in the contest but the offense kept proving itself lacking. Nothing displayed this continuing problem more clearly than when Marcus Rush blocked a punt in the second quarter and set the offense...

Sunday Morning Hangover: Is Indy Slip Sliding Away for Badgers?

One play away. It's what coaches always tell their backup quarterbacks and it rang true on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall as Joel Stave was sacked on the very first offensive play of the 2nd half, breaking his collarbone in the process. In stepped Danny O'Brien, the original week one starter, and down went the momentum that the Wisconsin offense had seemingly been building...

No Stave, no home win streak for Badgers

MADISON, Wis. All the doubt and the questions that surfaced during Wisconsin's early-season struggles seemed a distant memory when the Badgers took the football field Saturday afternoon. The stellar running game had returned, and the Badgers' first-year quarterback looked confident. Most important, they were nationally ranked and winning again. And then, with one third...

Colorado Buffaloes vs. Oregon Ducks: love ‘em & hate ‘em

Spartans Break Badgers Hearts Again in 16-13 OT Snoozer

This one will hurt, no question about it. Wisconsin blew a 10-3 lead with just 6:06 left in a game that saw both defenses dominate. However the Badgers defense would crack late and that allowed Michigan State to spoil Wisconsin's homecoming in a 16-13 overtime victory at Camp Randall.  Adding insult to injury is the uncertain status of a shoulder injury to Badgers starting...

Rival Rewind finally gives Notre Dame some credit

Michigan has the unique position of having three big rivals. Most teams only have one rival to get up for, but year-in and year-out, Michigan has three. While we, as fans, hate each of these teams, we carry some respect for them. Michigan State and Ohio State carry conference affiliation ties while Notre Dame, well, we all just put up with them. All season long, it’s fun to keep...
