    Wisconsin Game Summaries

    #14 Wisconsin VS #1 Iowa

    Madison celebrates after Badgers stun Hawkeyes.​

    Wisconsin used the emotion of the Camp Randall crowd to get off to a 14-0 start that came mostly due to balance on offense, and some costly Iowa miscues in scoring position. However, conservative play calling on offense, combined with Iowa's rushing game nearly lead to a heartbreaking loss. The game ultimately came down to turnovers, and more specifically to execution in the red-zone. The Badgers were two for three with a costly interception, While the Hawkeyes missed three opportunities in scoring position. With the victory, Wisconsin moves to 8-3(5-3) on the year, and likely have dealt their hated rivals' national championship hopes a crippling blow. They finish the regular season in two weeks at Akron.

    Wisconsin dominates on the road, extends streak to 6.

    Badgers win in Akron by a final of 49 to 7. As expected, they were able to control the game on both offense and defense, pounding the Zips with the run while getting the opposing offense off the field quickly. Wisconsin had more yards rushing than the Zips had total. Senior QB John Mckinely got back into the starting role and showed well, going 15 of 21 for 200+ yards and four touchdowns through the air. TE Chris Thomas finished his collegiate regular season career by catching 7 balls for 117 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Lawrence Bennet rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns, and helped his team grind out their sixth win in a row.

    Wisconsin finishes this year on a tear, at #8 in the BCS rankings, still has a small chance of earning an at large bid should some of the teams ahead of them falter. Regardless where and when they play, the Badgers will be looking to extend their streak and get that tenth victory.

    Wisconsin: 45 vs Duke: 14


    Wisconsin brings home the hardware.

    The Dukies didn't seem to realize they were in a bowl game until it was too late. Wisconsin jumped out to a 28-0 lead at half, by which point put the game away. It was a great day for the Badgers offensively, as they piled up 457 total yards with a very balanced attack. Down 38-0 in the fourth, Duke suddenly played like they belonged in a bowl game, and looked unstoppable for a stretch. They moved the ball well at times, but were 0 for 3 on fourth down conversions, including one at the goaline with just a minute left in the game. QB John Mckinely (26-33, 322 yds and four total touchdowns) and TE Chris Thomas (10 catches, 118 yds and a TD catch) both go out in style, while Lawrence Bennet turning in a solid performance (18 car, 118 yds and 2 rushing TDs) and staking his claim to the top spot at running back going into next season.

    Wisconsin vs Washington State​

    Badgers 40
    Cougs 3

    Wisconsin starts off the year with a dominating victory over the visiting Cougars. Antwan Moore showed well in his first start this season, throwing for three hundred yards and a TD with no interceptions. The team didn't turn the ball over, a fact of which the coach made note during the post game news conference. The team also got a boost from the running game, as Paul Hoffman ran for 134 yards and three TDs to earn player of the game honors. Defensively, the Badgers allowed only 153 yards of total offense to the Cougars, while also forcing a fumble for good measure.


    Steve Young shows off his skills, forcing the fumble on this play with a big hit.

    Paul Hoffman turns the fumble into six points with his first TD run of the day.

    Moore connects with Moore for more yards on this one.

    Moore throws his first TD pass of the season.

    Look ahead: Wisconsin was supposed to handle Washington State, and they did. Week 2 will present a much, much tougher challenge when eighth ranked LSU visits Madison.

    Wisconsin vs LSU

    *15 Badgers 23
    #8 Tigers 21

    Picking up right where they left it in 2014, Wisconsin wins a nail biter against a top ten ranked team at Camp Randall. The crowd was tremendous from the start, and the team seemed to feed off of it throughout the day. Especially the defense. As expected coming into the season, offense was a grind against the talented Tigers D, and it looked as though the Badgers would be in for a long day as Antwan Moore quickly threw a pick six. But the coach stuck with him, and to his credit, he managed the game well enough from that point on to help his team win. Hoffman provided 81 yards and a TD on the ground, and was leaned on heavily, particularly in the first half. But, this game ultimately was one by the defense. They were able to limit the Tigers to 240 yards of total offense, and rattled their young QB as the unit picked him off three times, and forced him to fumble. Later, after giving up a TD drive, they stepped up to the challenge again, forcing three straight incomplete passes to cement the victory.


    Key plays of the game:






    Look ahead: The Badgers will be resting up from their tough battle with LSU during the bye, and also getting ready for what likely be another when the #6 Auburn Tigers visit Camp Randall.
