Wisconsin looks to bounce back against Nebraska

One week following the worst performance in the first five weeks of the 2015 season, the Wisconsin Badgers are desperate for their first conference win, and will have to earn it on the road at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln against a struggling Nebraska Cornhuskers team.

Badgers offense only goes as far as Joel Stave takes it (and that’s not a good thing)

Through three games, Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Joel Stave was the talk of the town in Madison. He seemed to have shaken off the cobwebs of a bad mental slump and sluggish on-field performance during 2014. Wisconsin’s reality became it needing Joel Stave to play that way for it to win. The run game was without star running back Corey Clement and the young offensive line was...

Badgers Literally Give Up Heartland Trophy in Loss to Iowa

Wisconsin has owned the last three matchups in the battle for the Heartland Trophy, but thanks to five total turnovers the big bull of a trophy is heading back to the Iowa Hawkeyes trophy case.

Is Joel Stave Really One of Big Ten’s Best QB’s?

Joel Stave and Big Ten’s best aren’t exactly words that have gone hand-in-hand throughout his career at the University of Wisconsin. That was especially the case after last season’s performance.

Joel Stave leading the Wisconsin Badgers to success in 2015

Just under a year ago, Joel Stave made his way under center at Ryan Field against the Northwestern Wildcats, who were embarrassing the 17th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers. Tanner McEvoy, now a safety and receiver in addition to taking minimal snaps from the gun in a wildcat formation, had been benched after a brutal first half, where he went 4-10 for 24 yards and an interception. In came...

Joel Stave’s renewal makes Badgers offense dangerous

Joel Stave entered the 2015 season amid some big time skepticism, and rightfully so after a season like the last one. However, the senior quarterback had 28 games of starting experience and lessons learned to build upon in the offseason.

Video: Wisconsin QB Joel Stave And His Brother Performed Ed Sheeran’s “Everything Has Changed” Together

Here is something you may not expect to see from a Division I quarterback. Wisconsin’s Joel Stave helped out his brother Bryan on a cover recording of Ed Sheeran’s love song “Everything Has Changed.” Stave mostly plays some percussion but jumps on background vocals in the chorus.
