Hurricanes Slip Up To Pitt & Opens Door for Badgers

Black Friday college football has been known in the past for some crazy upsets. I recall years ago, Colorado stunning second-ranked Nebraska years ago. Today, we had another one with 4-7 Pitt knocking off the second-ranked Miami Hurricanes, 24-14, prying the door wide open for

SnoTap Badgers Preview: Wisconsin vs. Minnesota

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about how Minnesota could be a trouble spot for Wisconsin. Even though the Badgers are a 17-point favorite, Minnesota would love nothing more than ending the Badgers’ perfect season. Minnesota is 5-6 with one win away from bowl eligibility,

Badgers Continue to Knock on CFB Playoff’s Door

Wisconsin finished off their two most impressive victories of the season beating Iowa and Michigan in back-to-back weeks with dominating defense. Some thought maybe Wisconsin could move up to the number four position and overtake Oklahoma. That didn’t happen. Wisconsin stays knocking on the door

Badgers Inch Closer to the CFB Playoff

On Tuesday, the CFB Playoff Committee came out with another round of rankings. These nights haven’t been friendly to Wisconsin thus far, but last night, they saw their first window of opportunity. Wisconsin is the first team out at number five with Alabama, Clemson, Miami

Badger Musings: Wisconsin’s Defense Makes Statement

Badgers Preview: Iowa vs. Wisconsin

Iowa and Wisconsin have an under-the-radar rivalry in the Big Ten. People do not talk about it in the same way they do with some of the others in the conference, but it’s a very fun game each and every year. Wisconsin holds the series
