Badger Recap: Week 4

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wisconsin (WKOW) ---

The No.19  Badgers took care of business in their last nonconference game of the year, moving them to 2 and 1 on the season.

More than 80,000 fans packed Camp Randall for the first night game in three years. They did not leave disappointed as Wisconsin rolled Hawaii 28-0.
The Badgers once again took the field without Corey Clement. Instead, the run game would go through red-shirt freshman Taiwan Deal and sophomore Dare Ogunbowale. Deal set the tone with 147 tough running yards and two scores. Ogunbowale chipped in 85 and a score as the Badgers rushed for 326 yards.


"We just wanted to make sure that everyone knew that even though Corey wasn't there," said Deal in their post-game presser," We're still going to pound the ball. We're still going to be good at it."
"We're like we've got to go out there and do this," Ogunbowale added, "Big Ten is coming up, things like that. So we have to go out here and run the ball because we don't have Corey."

Head Coach Paul Chryst noted that both backs will get a ton of play while Clement recovers over the next month.
"I think that we've got two backs that are going to play a ton. I couldn't even tell you which one...I think they both know they're playing and we need them both a ton."

The most dominant performance though came from the defense which allowed only 15 rushing yards to Hawaii. Wisconsin pitched their second shutout of the year. They've allowed only three total points in three home games this season.


"It just shows how hard that we've worked and how much we love to play the game and run around out there," red-shirt senior safety Michael Caputo said.


 The celebration of this victory though was short-lived as the Badgers know the tuneups are now over and conference play is ready to begin. Wisconsin hosts Iowa Saturday, October 3, at 11 a.m.
