The Badger The Dominant effort was one of Michigan’s worst home losses in recent program history, and helped Wisconsin remain unbeaten with a 2–0 overall score (2-0 B1G).
Let’s take a look at some of the key story lines that have risen to the surface from winning.
With a number of major players unable to participate on Saturday due to injury and / or COVID-19 protocols, Badgers had to turn to some of the younger players to perform.
And boy did they.
In retreat, absence Jarrett Grochik And the Isaac Gerendo It means more opportunities for a real new student Galen burger. The 4-star former recruiter from New Jersey scored a huge win on the conscription track last spring and dazzled in his first job of the season. A smooth sprinter who also demonstrated his ability to pick up passes on Saturday, Berger led the team with a multi-purpose 100 yards. The young ball carrier also led the team in carriers with 15 nets and 87 yards off the ground, including a beautiful 23 yards distance. It’s unclear how far he’ll take into account the turnover once both of the top players are back, but it looks like Berger has the knack for adding something to the room.
In a wide reception, Shimmer Dyke He saw an extended time playing with adults Jack Dunn Cant go. The state’s newest student was recent to fall camp, and he showed his abilities on Saturday. In addition to pulling in two pieces to 29 yards, he had 30 yards in the opposite direction that he almost landed. Dike is a playmaker, and he should continue to see his chances increase after a strong showing against Michigan.

With the Badgers team leading up late in the match, Joe Rudolph was able to play some young striker as well. The reserves played very well, and paved the way for Berger’s long downfall. The biggest surprise was seeing a real female student Jack Nelson, Ex-five-star recruit in the Class of 2020, earning his playtime too early on the right tackle. Wisconsin generally takes a very developmental approach to the offensive streak, with players usually seeing the field only after a red shirt season. Seeing Nelson buy time so quickly is definitely noteworthy for his future in the position.
The influence of the young players was not only limited to foul.
At the outer back, freshman Nick Herbig He led the team in tackles while the team was without an outside back Green May Advance Which is listed as beginner on the depth chart. Herbig was a threat on the field, scoring three losing tackles as well. This performance, when combined with a strong showing in the opening match against Illinois, definitely makes it appear as if Herbig is the teammate of the outer back.
Along the defensive line, defensive end regularly start Jarrett Rand He was unable to go. After an injury Matt HenningsenAnd the Isaiah Mullins Saw the time increase. The 6-foot, 4-foot sophomore student withstood the Wolverine and made two gentle stops. Plus, a real freshman James Thompson Jr. He also got minutes late in the match. While he almost didn’t make much of an impact and would get hurt in the game, the fact that he traveled and played the shots is quite interesting.
Overall, the Recruitment Class of 2020 was the highest-rated group to ever fall for Badgers in the rating era. So far, the group has lived up to the hype, albeit with a small sample size. With this season having no effect on eligibility, Paul Chryst and his crew seem more willing to allow younger players to view the stadium, and that has worked so far.
Although there were no multiplayer across all three levels of defense, the Wisconsin defense had an impressive performance.
While Michigan was definitely experiencing some severe pains to grow in mid-back again, the defense was in place to do the play and capitalize on mistakes. Objections before Scott Nelson (thanks Eric Burrell) And the Liu Shanal Set Badgers with short field twice, recording drives.
Add a large stance on the goal line, and Michigan held just 55 yards in total (2.5 yards per attempt), and the defense was completely in control.
At a conference with some major upheavals for the high-profile teams, Jim Leonard’s defense proved to be one of the best units in the conference as usual.
In the opening match against Illinois, many difficulties were made in the running game. The offensive line had some missed missions, run missed some holes, and the team’s two jet raids were unsuccessful for reasons of their own.
Saturday night, an accelerating Wisconsin offensive was back in shape. The offensive streak has done a phenomenal job drawing on the Wolverines and opening some huge holes to run all night. Berger W. Nakia Watson Combined for a more than 150-yard rush on just 27 cart, three touchdowns were recorded.
The full-back was also very productive in the burst division, with the Mason Stock Score the result of a lunge (he also had a landing reception), and John Chenall Team Busting 43 yards long scamper (Editor’s note: Rattling?) Through the middle of defense.
However, the biggest part of the attack was the way the Badger used Operation Overwind. Both Danny Davis III and Kendrick Pryor The scorer was in this role, and really helped extend the sideline to the sidelines. Davis made the most yards from his chances, sprinting seven times for 65 yards. The play also held a 30-yard long sweep jet-set, which flipped over with Dike.
The jet action worked consistently against Michigan and also added a nice curl for the offensive attack that was missing in the opening. With the badger set to face traditionally tough North West The Defensive Rush, it will be important for the Wisconsin Rush to continue. It was very clear how much this move slowed the Michigan defense, and was exploited by the Badger Line of Offensive from there.
Graham Mertz He missed a number of throws he might have wished he’d gotten in better shape, but overall, the freshman red-shirt student played well on his return to play in the short prep period. With a full week to prepare for Northwestern University, Wisconsin must return to full strength.
