    Since 2016 Wisconsin has started 14,12,12,12, 14 and this year it looks to be 15! 16 if you count Poly/White mix OLB Herbig. Another solid team for Wisconsin, should be in the hunt for a Big Ten Championship.

    OFFENSE

    QB Graham Mertz 6'3 215 RSo.

    FB John Chenal 6'2 250 JR

    TE Jake Ferguson 6'5 245 and Jack Eschenbach 6'6 235

    LT Tyler Beach RJr.6'5 310

    LG Josh Seltzner RSo. 6'3 330

    C Joe Tippman RSo. 6'6 320

    RG Jack Nelson RFr. 6'7 285

    RT Logan Bruss RSr.
    6'5 305

    Key Backups: Snowplow OL, RB Brady Schipper, Slot/return man Jack Dunn, QB Chase Wolf, TE Hayden Rucci

    DEFENSE

    DE Matt Henningsen 6'3 290

    OLB* Nick Herbig 6'2 225

    OLB Noah Burks 6'2 240

    MLB Leo Chenal 6'2 245

    MLB Jack Sanborn 6'2 235

    FS Scott Nelson 6'2 200

    SS Collin Wilder 5'11 195

    Love the makeup of this team every year. Jim Leonhard is certainly not afraid to recruit White athletes on defense!

    Mertz had a great debut vs. Illinois last year but was inconsistent throughout the rest of the season. Hopefully he developed more this offseason.

    Yes sir Leonhard has been a saving grace at DC! Turned down the Packers DC job too because he wants to win a Big Ten Championship!

    Really is a lot of pressure on Mertz, being highest rated QB in program history will do that. Agreed though! This team goes as far as he can take them.

    Joe Tippman named the starting Center. Make that 16 for the Badgers. Wow!

    This is awesome news! Hopefully Mertz can put together a great year and they can take down Ohio st.
