With a relationship with Melvin Gordon and a chance to play right away next year, it looks to be only a matter of time until Highland (KS) Community College defensive lineman Joe Keels makes his pledge to Wisconsin, which offered him Friday.

Sunday Morning Hangover: Stave, Badgers' response to adversity impressive

How can a team that has outscored their opponents 93 to 0 over the course of two games have possibly faced adversity yet? It doesn't make any sense.... Or it has happened and the devil is in the details.  Remember two early interceptions that could've changed the complexion of both the UMass and Tennessee Tech games?  Joel Stave, Gary Andersen and the rest of the...

After INT, Joel Stave bounces back for strong showing in win

MADISON, Wis. -- Joel Stave delivers a perfectly thrown spiral 50 yards downfield to a streaking wide receiver in stride, the type of toss only he can provide. He also can stare down his first look on a pass play and send a head-scratching throw into double coverage for an interception. That type of unpredictability from Stave is confounding at times. But what has made Stave stick...

Badgers defense begins season with consecutive shutouts

MADISON, Wis. -- You could argue Wisconsin has played the easiest schedule in all of college football through two weeks and you wouldn't hear much resistance. One opponent plays at the FCS level, and the other might as well be considered on the same rung. So take that for what it's worth. But also consider just how dominant Wisconsin's defense has been during that stretch...

Badgers put emphasis on special teams in practice

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said Monday there was room for improvement in the Badgers' special teams unit following a season opening victory against UMass. And he went to work this week trying to fix those issues with some unusually special teams-heavy practices. Will the results be any better Saturday against Tennessee Tech? Andersen sure hopes so, noting...

Badgers report card: Kicking game main concern

MADISON, Wis. -- Another cupcake, another blowout victory for Wisconsin on Saturday. This time, the Badgers dismantled FCS foe Tennessee Tech 48-0 at Camp Randall Stadium. The Golden Eagles fumbled on the first play from scrimmage, and it was all but over from there. Wisconsin fans clamoring for a tougher opponent will get their wish next week against Arizona State. But first, let...

The Freshman Fifteen - Matt Hubley

One of the final in-state piece to Wisconsin's 2013 recruiting class, Matt Hubley brings versatility and speed to Wisconsin's secondary. Badger Nation gets to know the freshman defensive back a little better in the return of our popular feature.

First look at Wisconsin’s new red football helmets

The Wisconsin Badgers are breaking out their new red football helmets for Saturday's game against Tennessee Tech. Here's the first live look at the new lids.

Notes: Straus Makes Most of Debut

Getting his first career start in the place of injured fullback Derek Watt, redshirt sophomore Derek Straus didn't wait long to make an impact, scoring his first career touchdown on Wisconsin's first drive and springing several others in a 48-0 rout of Tennessee Tech.

Melvin Gordon and the Wisconsin Badgers fly past Tennesse Tech 48-0

Wisconsin’s three-headed monster reared it’s ugly head once again as Melvin Gordon, James White and Corey Clement all eclipsed the century mark for the second straight week in a 48-0 rout of Tennessee Tech. The offense will receive all the buzz for the seven touchdowns, but it’s the Badgers defense that has yet to have a hiccup this season. Soft competition aside, the Badgers...

Wisconsin shuts down Tennessee Tech

Melvin Gordon ran for 140 yards and a score, and No. 21 Wisconsin's overpowering defense got its second straight shutout in a 48-0 win over FCS school Tennessee Tech on Saturday. Joel Stave was 24 of 29 for 219 yards with three touchdowns and an interception, while defensive back Darius Hillary set the tone early by forcing a fumble that set up a score for the Badgers (2-0)...

The Land Grant Rant: Wisconsin Badgers Impressive in Season Opener

The more things change in the B1G, the more they stay the same. The past few years, the B1G has provided a lot of change for die-hard fans of America’s oldest conference to swallow. The addition of Nebraska seemed like a no-brainer. Adding teams like Rutgers and Maryland seemed like head scratchers on the surface but could easily be explained away by money, greed and television...
