An injury update on running back/safety Vonte Jackson should be coming today. Jackson, who has suffered injuries to both knees at Wisconsin, suffered what head coach Gary Andersen called a "mild setback" in Saturday's practice.

Andy Baggot from the State Journal has a wonderful update on Kyle Costigan's family, which has met its fundraising goals for Costigan's mother, Sandy, who was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer six months ago. Purely fantastic news for a family that deserves, and needs, it. Jeff Potrykus of the Journal Sentinel also has an update.

Fox Sports Wisconsin has more on Wisconsin's wide receivers, including the freshmen that have helped elevate the group's performance this fall.


The full Big Ten/ACC Challenge TV schedule was released Wednesday. Wisconsin hosts Duke in the headliner Dec. 3 at 8:30 p.m. CT, and that game will air on ESPN.


Four-star Hawaii offensive tackle Semisi Uluave has the Badgers in his top five. Badger247 has a more in-depth look at their chances ($).

A 2015 three-star safety Wisconsin was targeting is off the board.

The Badgers are also out of the running for a four-star 2016 quarterback.
