A WIAA Division 5 state championship set up a slew of postseason honors for the Aquinas High School football team this season, and three of it…
Matt Stafford threw a pick-6 and had a fumble that led to a Green Bay touchdown Sunday as the Rams fell 36-28 to the Packers for their third consecutive loss.
Reedsville (Division 7), Colby (Division 6) and Catholic Memorial (Division 4) also win titles.
Turnovers are all but guaranteed to be a deciding component of the Badgers' game against No. 9 Iowa, which has feasted on opponents' turnovers this season.
The Badgers locked in their first incoming transfer of the class in late October in Kalon Gervin, a cornerback from Michigan State.
The losing streak extended back to 2019, when the then-ranked No. 13 Badgers beat No. 9 Minnesota to close the regular season before losing the Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl.
The Wisconsin football team continued its dominance of Purdue and earned a win it can feel good about. Now Iowa looms.
It wasn't always pretty, but Wisconsin dominated Purdue in the second half. Here are some key takeaways from a key win in the Big Ten race.
Props to UW coach Paul Chryst for calling a fake punt, but the Badgers allowed Army to stick around, which results in lackluster grades from columnist Jim Polzin.
Kirk Cousins, wearing a grin, grabbed Vikings coach Mike Zimmer’s sweatshirt and shoved. Zimmer pushed back, then smiled before a security gua…
1. Avoid turnovers: This is trite, but it’s worth mentioning until the Badgers actually do it on Saturdays. UW has 12 turnovers this season, an average of three per game, and is facing an Illinois defense that has 10 takeaways (1.7 per game) this season. Illinois linebacker Jake Hansen has two forced fumbles in four games this season and 12 forced fumbles in his career. He’s one away from tying defensive end Simeon Rice’s program record for career fumbles forced. Thirty of the 74 points the UW defense has allowed have come on possessions following a UW turnover.
After allowing a total of 507 yards in their first two games, the Eagles gave up 534 to the Lakers, who scored 38 of the final 45 points to hand UW-L a 45-24 loss on Saturday.
After signing a four-year, $112 million extension to stay in Pittsburgh, T.J. Watt went out and showed why he deserves to be the highest-paid defender in the NFL. Watt recorded two sacks against Buffalo, forcing a fumble with one of them, and had five quarterback hits on Josh Allen. Watt has 51½ sacks since being drafted in 2017.
The 6-foot-1, 182-pounder starred on both sides of the ball for the Cardinals, but especially on defense, logging a third-best 38 tackles, including 10 solo takedowns, to go along with four tackles for loss, five sacks, a pair of fumble recoveries and two interceptions. Brunell also added nine catches for 163 yards and a score.
A WFCA All-Region selection this past spring, Harman wreaked havoc on opposing offenses from the Vikings’ linebacking corps. The 6-foot, 195-pound Harman racked up a team-high 11 sacks and had 18 tackles for loss and 72 tackles, including 53 solo takedowns. Harman also tallied a forced fumble, three blocked kicks and four passes defended in just seven games.
The 6-1, 205-pound Bothun, a linebacker and running back, was second on the team in tackles (72) and had four tackles for loss, three sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and an interception for a touchdown in the spring.
Magli, a North Dakota commit, is one of the Norskies’ leaders in the secondary and as a receiver. He was an AP first-team All-State selection as a defensive back for the alternate season and was a WFCA Large Schools All-State pick. He had 24 tackles, including 19 solo, forced a fumble and had two interceptions returned for scores. He is set to move from cornerback to safety. He also averaged 19.3 yards per catch on 16 receptions.
Tom Brady's quest for a seventh Super Bowl ring continues, thanks to a young defense that's regained its swagger when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers needed it most.
No. 18 UW lost 14-6 to No. 10 Indiana at Camp Randall, dropping the Badgers to 2-2 on the year and likely ending any chance they had at a New Year’s Six bowl game.
