BuckyCap: Badgers Score a Rare Blowout vs. Marquette

Wisconsin Badgers do not blowout Marquette often. This is the first time they’ve beaten Marquette by 15+ points since 1993-1994 season when the Badgers won 71-52. Wisconsin needed this game. They already dropped one non-conference game to St. Mary’s at the start of the year,
