Wisconsin backs out of home-and-home with Washington


Buried in a release from Washington announcing a pair of home-and-homes with BYU and Michigan is the fact that Wisconsin has backed out of its own series with the "other" UW. The statement reads: "... due to conflicts with its Big Ten Conference schedule, Wisconsin was forced to cancel its two games with the Huskies, previously scheduled for 2018 and 2021." As Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel points out, the Badgers have four Big Ten home games in 2018 and five in 2021.
