MADISON, Wis. -- They have not developed a clever moniker. No "Smash and Dash" or "Thunder and Lightning." Nose guards don't garner much publicity anyway, so Wisconsin's Beau Allen and Warren Herring are fine keeping it that way. "We'll talk about it," Herring said. "I don't know. I don't have a nickname yet." What they do have is a unique combination of skills that has allowed each to flourish on the field. Most already knew the veteran Allen would be a space eater. But perhaps the biggest surprise on the Badgers' front line has come from Herring, who is Allen's backup this season. Herring has brought a contrasting style up front that has made it difficult to prepare for the AllenHerring duo. "He's a big brute," Herring said of Allen. "I'm sort of a faster guy. Having Beau beating people up and me coming in doing my thing, it's a nice 1-2 combination." Allen has recorded 11 tackl...

Badgers add to 2014 class with Four-Star JUCO Defensive Tackle

This one has been long rumored, but after getting burned by the Donnell Vercher deal last season the Badgers learned the JUCO lesson and took their time this time around, but on Thursday it became official as Kenosha, WI native Joe Keels officially committed to the Badgers.  Not only is Keels a Wisconsin native, but he's also Melvin Gordon's cousin and played for Kenosha...

Wisconsin Football: Senior linebacker Chris Borland’s track to triumph

All Chris Borland wanted out of high school was a chance. Coming out of Archbishop Alter high school in Kettering, Ohio, was an undersized linebacker at 5-11 and 217 lbs. Of the 119 Division I-A teams in the NCAA, only one team offered him a scholarship, the Wisconsin Badgers. Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema (now head coach at Arkansas) gave Chris Borland that chance. At Archbishop...

How the Badgers ran & passed: Week 5

Our weekly look at how Wisconsin ran and passed, this time vs. Ohio State as well as for the season. Trends are certainly developing five game in.
