GAME THREAD: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers vs. Wisconsin Badgers

Hey, look. Football is back!

NCAA Football: Iowa at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve made it, friends. Football is back.

The No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers kick off the 2018 season tonight at Camp Randall Stadium (8 p.m. CT, ESPN) against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. It’s been an eventful offseason, especially over the last month or so, to say the least. After the normal roster attrition and spring/summer injuries, wide receivers Quintez Cephus and Danny Davis were suspended for their alleged involvement in an April incident. That soured a lot of the hype surrounding the Badgers, who received top-five hype from the Associated Press preseason poll and a whole slew of award watch list nods.

Anyway, you knew all that. For more recap, though, or to catch up on what you might’ve missed on the blog this week, are the highlights.

Once again this season, Jake and Owen will be covering home games (and possibly a road game here and there) for B5Q, so be sure to follow them on Twitter: @B5Q, @JakeKocoB5Q, @RieseDraft.

That’s probably all the intro you need. Join us in the comments below, and On Wisconsin!
