Here's a great look at how the Wisconsin Badgers (as well as the Seattle Seahawks) utilize jet sweeps as "constraint" plays, meaning they protect the offense's best plays. In this context for the Badgers and Seahawks, those would be outside and inside zone runs.

J.J. Watt, Patrick Peterson named honorary captains for Saturday's game

This is pretty cool: Two of the NFL's top defensive players will be honorary captains for Saturday's AdvoCare Texas Kickoff between LSU and Wisconsin at NRG Stadium in Houston. Houston Texans All-Everything defensive end J.J. Watt played for Wisconsin from 2008-10 (no duh), while Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson was a LSU Tiger for those same three seasons. Another fun fact: Watt has two brothers, Derek and T.J., currently on Wisconsin's roster, while Peterson has a brother, Avery, who plays wide receiver for LSU.
