The Wisconsin Badgers scrimmaged for the second time in fall camp on Friday afternoon. On Monday, redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook performed better than redshirt senior Bart Houston in the team’s first scrimmage. On Friday, media in attendance noted Houston played better than earlier in the week, and according to some, played better than the young southpaw.
Wisconsin Sports Zone Network’s Zach Heilprin and BadgerBlitz.com’s John Veldhuis ($) both reported Houston appeared to have the edge in Friday’s scrimmage. Houston’s always had the better arm in terms of strength and "spinning" the ball, and has shown that all spring. It’s now two weeks until the season opener, and with only two more practices open to the media, there’s still no clear cut indication whether Houston or Hornibrook have broken away from each other in the coaching staff’s eyes.
Per Heilprin’s report, it appeared running back Dare Ogunbowale, fullbacks Austin Ramesh and Alec Ingold (Update: Ramesh was limited), along with redshirt freshman Jon Dietzen, returned to the field on Friday.
For Dietzen (head), the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus noted he worked with redshirt sophomore Micah Kapoi at left guard while Dan Voltz rested. Right tackle Jake Maxwell was out again, and Potrykus reported Brett Connors got work at right tackle (Heilprin also noted right guard Beau Benzschawel also bumped out to right tackle, where he played for a portion of last season).
