2016 Wisconsin Season Preview
Wisconsin enters the 2015 season with a number of question marks. For the 3rd time since 2012, the Badgers have a new head coach, bringing in former Pitt head coach, and Wisconsin Alum, Paul Chryst to keep Badgers position as a Big Ten power. Also gone in 2015 will be Melvin Gordon, who rushed for more than 2,500 yards for the Badgers last season. Wisoncon sill turn to junior Corey Clement to take over at running back. Clement rushed for just under 1,000 yards last season as Gordon’s backup, and should be able to pick up right were Gordon left off. Quarterback Joel Stave returns for his senior season and will have a fantastic offensive line in front of him, anchored by left tackle Tyler Marz. With a veteran defense, Wisconsin will start the season as the favorites to win the Big Ten West division again. Top games on the 2015 Wisconsin Badgers schedule will be week 1 against Alabama, against Iowa, at Nebraska, and at Minnesota.
