Notebook: Badgers get big performance from surprise source

MADISON, Wis. -- Dare Ogunbowale didn't have any grand ideas about what Saturday's game might hold for him. Two weeks ago, he was a defensive back struggling to crack Wisconsin's playing rotation.

Badgers QB commit continues to set high school football world on fire

The Wisconsin Badgers may have gotten lucky in a way no one in the athletic department was thinking when Gary Andersen was hired as head coach. See, it didn’t take long for his relationships inside Utah to pay off, and one of the biggest names in the state just so happened to be a high 3-star quarterback by the name of Austin Kafentzis.
