Found November 02, 2011 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
MADISON, Wis. Chris Borland is scanning his memory bank, trying to recall the last time he's been a part of a three-game losing streak as a football player. Borland, Wisconsin's middle linebacker, pauses a beat before settling on an answer. "I've never lost three games in a row," Borland said. "I lost three games in all of high school." The idea, then, that perennial power Wisconsin stands on the precipice of a three-game losing skid after vying for a national championship game spot just two weeks earlier is almost unheard of to Borland. The Badgers haven't endured a three-game losing streak since 2008.

The Wisconsin Badgers (6-2, 2-2) will be back at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (4-4, 2-2).  The teams are tied (along with Ohio State) for second place in the Leaders division behind Penn State (5-0 in conference), but the Badgers have dominated the matchup lately, with their last loss to Purdue coming in 2003. Both are coming off road losses and...

Gasser stronger going into sophomore season

MADISON, Wis. -- Despite all the basketball accolades that followed Josh Gasser to the University of Wisconsin last fall, he wasn't sure if he'd really make a serious impact for the Badgers as a freshman on the court during the season. After all, major Division I college basketball isn't the same as high school, where Gasser earned first-team all-state and Gatorade Player...
