MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin renewed football coach Paul Chryst's five-year contract through January 2024 on Friday.
Chryst is entering his fifth season with the Badgers, who wrapped up a relatively disappointing season at 8-5 (5-4 Big Ten) with a dominating 35-3 win in the Pinstripe Bowl over Miami. Chryst is 42-12 at Wisconsin and the Badgers won consecutive Big Ten West titles before falling short this past season.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathan Taylor played tour guide for his Wisconsin teammates who had never visited New York. They hit the usual landmarks with trips to Lincoln Center and Times Square. Taylor even gave his buds a taste of the luxe life with a window-shopping jaunt along Fifth Avenue.
"It's real fun to see those guys looking at all those sights," said Taylor, a New Jersey native. "New York has a lot to offer."
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin will start Jack Coan at quarterback in the Pinstripe Bowl against Miami with Alex Hornibrook sidelined by a recurrence of concussion symptoms.
Coach Paul Chryst said Thursday that Hornibrook, a third-year starter, took part in more than two weeks of bowl practice before symptoms returned.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin standout nose tackle Olive Sagapolu will miss the rest of the season with a right arm injury, while quarterback Alex Hornibrook remains questionable for the game at No. 21 Penn State on Saturday.
Coach Paul Chryst says Sagapolu had surgery on Wednesday after getting hurt two weeks ago against Northwestern.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin will need some help to make November a month to remember.
The Badgers are beat up, out of the Top 25 and out of first place in the Big Ten West.
A loss last week to Northwestern knocked Wisconsin (5-3, 3-2) from its familiar perch atop the division. Now, just winning their last four games of the regular season won't guarantee a trip the conference title game after falling behind the Wildcats.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Their playoffs hopes are all but gone. The defense is banged up. The offense struggled in a blowout loss to Michigan.
At least one big goal is still in play for No. 23 Wisconsin: the Badgers still control their destiny to win the Big Ten West and get to the conference title game. The easiest path is to win their last six regular-season games.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Starting tight end Zander Neuville will likely miss the rest the season for No. 16 Wisconsin because of a left knee injury.
Coach Paul Chryst announced the injury on Thursday after the Badgers (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) wrapped up their last practice before facing Nebraska on Saturday night.
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — With their season on the line in late September, Wisconsin showed that the Big Ten West will likely run through Madison yet again.
Alex Hornibrook threw a 17-yard TD pass to A.J. Taylor with 57 seconds left and No. 18 Wisconsin bounced back from last week's loss by rallying past Iowa 28-17 on Saturday night.
The first Big Ten game of the season for No. 18 Wisconsin and Iowa could end up being the biggest one in the West division this season.
The Badgers (2-1), despite getting upset by BYU last weekend, still look like the class of the struggling West. But Iowa (3-0) and its dominant defense look like Wisconsin's most dangerous threat — and Saturday's game at Iowa City could go a long way in determining who reaches the Big Ten title game.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin receiver A.J. Taylor has the athleticism and smarts to singlehandedly dominate a secondary.
The junior is pretty good at catching balls with two hands, too.
Just what opposing defenses don't need: another player on the sixth-ranked Badgers named Taylor capable of making big plays.
Through two games, A.J. Taylor has made for a pretty good offensive tandem with Jonathan Taylor, the FBS' leading rusher.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Receiver Danny Davis is been cleared to play on Saturday for No. 6 Wisconsin against BYU after the sophomore completed his two-game suspension.
"The suspension has been served and he'll be ready to go," coach Paul Chryst said Monday. "I've been proud of the way he took it and learned, and I've been proud of his response to this point."
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Jonathan Taylor needed extra time to rest and regroup after a win over New Mexico.
Rushing for 253 yards on 33 carries, both career highs, can take a toll on a running back, and he took some time to himself before speaking to reporters about his milestone day.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — And then there were two.
Wisconsin's Big Four of experienced receivers is down to A.J. Taylor and Kendric Pryor following the suspensions of Quintez Cephus and Danny Davis.
That leaves opportunities for sophomore walk-ons Adam Krumholz and Jack Dunn to shine in expanded roles for the fourth-ranked Badgers in the season opener on Friday night against Western Kentucky.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The bar is set high for the Wisconsin defense.
The roster might turn over, but the fourth-ranked Badgers' D rarely crumbles. Since 2013, Wisconsin is second nationally in both scoring defense (16.1 points) and total defense (282.6 yards).
But to return to that level this year, Wisconsin might need some young or inexperienced players to grow up quickly. So far, coach Paul Chryst likes what he has seen in the preseason.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin wide receiver Danny Davis was suspended for the first two games of the season on Wednesday, two days after his roommate was charged with felony sexual assault following an incident last April involving two women at his apartment.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Badgers are well-equipped to shatter perceptions about their offense this year.
Focusing on just slowing down Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor on the ground might be a risky proposition for the rest of the Big Ten.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Strong at its core, Wisconsin's defense is undergoing a makeover on the edges.
Coach Paul Chryst needs new starters at both defensive end positions, both outside linebacker positions, and both cornerback spots.
It might be asking a lot for most other teams to play top 10-caliber defense with that kind of turnover.
At Wisconsin, a stingy D is the norm.
The roster changes. There have been three defensive coordinators over the last five years.
