Badgers report card: Stave's confidence soars in gritty win

It was a game billed as the most significant Wisconsin-Minnesota football matchup since 1962, and both teams certainly played as though they understood the stakes. But only one could win, and -- as has been the case for a decade now -- Wisconsin once again prevailed. No. 14 Wisconsin came back from a two-touchdown deficit to beat No. 18 Minnesota 34-24 at Camp Randall Stadium in...

Big Ten Championship Game Preview: Badgers can become Big Ten’s bellwether program

With the No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers 11th-straight win over Minnesota, UW presented itself with an opportunity to win a Big Ten title next weekend. It’s the goal of every team, every year — win a conference championship. You can’t get to the national title picture or get national respect without it (unless you’re in the SEC). National respect could very well come Wisconsin...

WATCH: Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon's Ankle Twisted By Minnesota Defender During a Tackle

Wisconsin Badgers chop down Gophers, return to B1G title game

It may have felt a little like deja vu for the Badger faithful, as Wisconsin spotted another Big Ten West contender a 17-3 lead at Camp Randall Stadium. Good thing Wisconsin also decided to do the whole comeback thing, as UW used 24 unanswered points to take down the Gophs, 34-24, and keep Paul Bunyan’s Axe home. Wisconsin moved the series-best winning streak to 11 games, and also...

Gopher Hate Week: Decade of domination in review (2010 edition)

(All this week we’re taking a look back at the last 10 years of wins in this rivalry, reminding everyone of the decade of domination by the Badgers) What better than a six-pack of wins? How about keeping the streak alive with a seventh win. Oh, and doing it on homecoming too. That’s what was at stake for the Badgers and Gophs in the 2010 competition. Needless to say, the safety...

Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker Celebrates Win By Punching Ball Into Teammate’s Head (Video)

Sam Dekker’s Wisconsin teammates should take cover when the Badgers forward is celebrating a win. Wisconsin defeated Georgetown 68-65 on Thanksgiving in Paradise Island, Bahamas, to advance to the Battle 4 Atlantis Finals. But it wasn’t sunshine and rainbows for all of the Badgers when Dekker began flexing, slamming the ball onto the court before eventually punching the ball...

Beyond the Box Score: Wisconsin 68, Georgetown 65

Last night we gave a recap of the big semifinal win in the Bahamas. Today let’s dig a little deeper into that box score. As we mentioned last night, this was a great team win. It was a nice test as the previous five teams gave little resistance to the Badgers. Having to come back against a good team is what Wisconsin needed early in this season. Bronson Koenig and Duje Dukan combined...

Wisconsin-Minnesota: The Badgers Get A Chance To Write A Different Ending To Their Season

When the Wisconsin Badgers host the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday, a lot more than Paul Bunyan’s Axe will be at stake. Such is the transformed nature of this game, thanks mostly to the ability of Jerry Kill to lift the Gophers to an even higher level. Wisconsin expects — and is expected by pundits — to play for division and conference championships. That Minnesota has...

Wisconsin's Sam Dekker punches basketball into teammate's head during celebration (VIDEO)

The Wisconsin Badgers got a big 68-65 win on Thanksgiving over the Georgetown Hoyas, helping them advance to the Battle 4 Atlantis Finals. Wisconsin's Sam Dekker was so happy after the final buzzer he slammed the ball down before inadvertently punching it into teammate Nigel Hayes face. If Hayes is wearing a protective face mask in the finals, we'll know who to blame.

Badgers Rally Against Georgetown; Championship Bound

Get to the next round. It’s what the Badgers needed to do, and it’s what they did. It just didn’t happen the way we have gotten used to. Bronson Koenig and Duje Dukan both shined off the bench as Wisconsin came back from a nine-point second half deficit to defeat a strong Georgetown team, 68-65. The Badgers move on to play Oklahoma in the Battle 4 Atlantis championship game...

Badgers freshmen watch: Game 11

Remember way back when people were excited about the possibilities of this year's freshmen (and redshirt freshmen)? While a number against Iowa, only four appeared in any statistical column: "true freshmen" Rafael Gaglanone (of course) and Austin Hudson and redshirt freshmen Joe Ferguson and Troy Fumagalli. No doubt the playing time, however brief, will help these young players in...

McEvoy making impact with feet at quarterback

MADISON, Wis. -- On the surface, some Wisconsin fans may consider Tanner McEvoy's season as a Badgers quarterback to be something less than satisfactory. How could the team's quarterback of the future, they will ask, throw more interceptions than touchdowns and lose his starting job after only five games? Questions about McEvoy's passing skills are a legitimate concern, and he has...

Rebirth of ground game has teams running wild

There goes Melvin Gordon, ripping off another long run. And there's Samaje Perine piling up yards in punishing fashion. Oh, look, here comes Tevin Coleman - and there he goes, sprinting away from a bunch of flailing defenders. College football teams have been running wild this season, averaging more yards per carry and per game than at any time in recent years. Having game-breakers...

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 11

An interesting thing occurred for Wisconsin against Iowa last Saturday. The Badgers handed the ball off 33 times and Melvin Gordon received 31 of those. The other two hand-offs both lost yards. Yes, Tanner McEvoy also ran the ball, but, as mentioned way back in the beginning, I don't track QB runs as they can come on scrambles and such, plus sacks count as rush yards. Maybe that...

Samaje Perine’s 427-Yard Day Somehow Got The Taiwanese Animation Treatment

This past Saturday, Oklahoma freshman Samaje Perine broke the one-week old FBS record for most rushing yards in a single game. Perine ran for a ridiculous 427 yards on 34 carries, besting Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon, who finished with 408 yards two Saturdays ago. Apparently, the occasion was important enough to warrant one of NMA’s bizarre animations. The video mostly makes fun...

Badgers report card: Nail-biter a learning experience

Quarterback Joel Stave never has been known for his wheels. But when it mattered most on Saturday, Stave scrambled for the game-clinching 12-yard run during Wisconsin's 26-24 victory against Iowa in Kinnick Stadium. Stave's slide certainly left something to be desired -- he was crushed near midfield and flipped over at the knees. But no one can question his toughness. And his play...
