Badgers look to stay on roll, visit Northwestern

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

The last time Wisconsin won at Northwestern, Ron Dayne was making his run for the Heisman Trophy and the Badgers were on the way to the Rose Bowl.

Yes, it has been that long.

The 17th-ranked Badgers open Big Ten play Saturday at Northwestern, hoping for their first win at the Wildcats since 1999.

Wisconsin (3-1) followed a season-opening loss to LSU in Houston with victories at home over Western Illinois, Bowling Green and South Florida.

Northwestern (2-2, 1-0) won by 23 at Penn State and comes in with back-to-back victories after dropping its first two at home to California and Northern Illinois.
