No. 18 Wisconsin hosts W Illinois in home opener

MADISON (AP) -

FCS school Western Illinois visits Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday for Wisconsin's home opener.

The 18th-ranked Badgers will look to bounce back from last week's deflating 28-24 loss to LSU.

The combination of a blowing a 17-point lead in the second half and the struggles of new starting quarterback Tanner McEvoy would be enough cause for concern in a typical week. But it came against an SEC foe that rallied for the win.

Western Illinois running back J.C. Baker rushed for 137 yards and scored two touchdowns last week against Valparaiso.
