UW’s defense had plenty to do with the Badgers’ 27-7 win over No. 9 Iowa at Camp Randall, but the stop it made on a fourth down late in the third quarter stunted the bit of momentum the Hawkeyes were creating.
If you’re among those passionate Packers fans who are feeling an alarming déjà vu vibe of past defenses who let the team down when the stakes were the highest, you’re not alone. What had been a top-5 outfit just a few weeks ago has started ceding big plays and big point totals to opponents, and while defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s guys have fallen to eighth in total defense (325.8 yards per game) and tied for 10th in scoring defense (21.6 points per game), Barry (above) isn’t panicking.
The receiver/cornerback from Middleton committed to Wisconsin as a preferred walk-on. He led Middleton in 2021 with 40 receptions, 710 yards and 10 touchdowns. His production earned him first-team All-Big Eight Conference honors on offense and defense, and he was also first-team WFCA all-state.
The 6-foot-6 tight end from Monroe accepted a scholarship offer from the University of Wisconsin just 11 days after receiving it. Seagreaves only caught 11 passes this season but converted to a running back role in the Cheesemakers’ Wing-T offense. He rushed for 1,294 yards on 135 carries.

1. Continue spreading around the ball: Graham Mertz completed passes to nine receivers last week against Northwestern, a welcomed sign of his improvement and the passing game’s step forward in recent weeks.

That could be helpful against a Cornhuskers passing defense that was shredded two weeks ago against Ohio State and lost its best player, linebacker JoJo Domann, after he had surgery on his left hand.
Koa McIntyre threw three touchdowns despite the wind whipping across Heedum Field — and the Knights' defense did the rest.
