NRG Stadium putting down turf for Wisconsin-LSU

Here's our built-in excuse in the event things don't go well in Houston: it was the damn turf! Sarcasm aside, this makes sense considering how much the Texans (the building's main occupants) have invested in the field. It is kinda weird they play two days before the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff and then their next game (the regular-season opener) doesn't come until Sept. 7, but again, this is understandable.

Special teams is yet another area where the Badgers will miss Jared Abbrederis. Like the former star wideout, Kenzel Doe will be counted on to carry not only Wisconsin's wide receivers, but also the returners.

5 more Badgers earn their 'Ws'

During Friday's morning practice, reporters noted a few more freshmen sporting the Motion "W" on their helmets. Offensive tackle Beau Benzschawel, linebacker D'Cota Dixon, safety Lubern Figaro, defensive lineman Conor Sheehy and cornerback Derrick Tindal are the newest first-year players to exchange their black stripes for Wisconsin's logo, joining kicker Rafael Gaglianone and wide receivers Natrell Jamerson, George Rushing and Krenwick Sanders with their "Ws." The tradition, of course, started when Gary Andersen came to Wisconsin. This year's crop of freshmen has widely impressed in camp, elevating expectations for certain positions previously seen as weaknesses. That's especially true at kicker (Gaglianone might have the starting job locked up) and wide receiver (two, maybe three among Jamerson, Rushing and Sanders could travel with the team to LSU for the opener Aug. 30).
