Over the last decade, the University of Wisconsin has become an underrated hotbed for NFL talent. In the spirit of continuing the trend, six Wisconsin Badgers will showcase their talents in Mobile, Alabama for the annual Senior Bowl.

Quarterback Russell Wilson, wide receiver Nick Toon, offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler, fullback Bradie Ewing, punter Brad Nortman and long snapper Kyle Wojta will star on the North squad at Ladd-Pebbles Stadium on January 28th. The game is scheduled to appear on NFL Network at 3:00 PM CT.

“This is the most players we’ve ever had at one time from Wisconsin and it speaks volumes to the amount of talent the Badgers had year,” said Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale.

Badgers Rose Bowl Hopes Still Alive


Who knew the Wisconsin Badgers only blemish would be a loss to Michigan State after back-to-back games with Big Ten powers Ohio State and Iowa? After an exhilarating win over Ohio State last Saturday, the Badgers came up huge with a come-from-behind 31-30 win over the Hawkeyes in Iowa City.

The barnburner at Kinnick Stadium had it all including the Heartland Trophy (a statue of a bull). More importantly, the Badgers kept their Rose Bowl hopes alive as they now sit tied for second in the Big Ten Standings behind only the Spartans who squeaked out a 35-27 win at Northwestern. In a quick turn of events, the Badgers will now become Hawkeye fans when Michigan State takes a trip to Iowa City next weekend.
