  1. Braelon Allen

Allen continues to be Wisconsin’s only saving grace when it comes to offense. He’s able to do this despite the amount of time he has to create big plays, due to Wisconsin’s poor o-line.

“To lose in the way that we did, it was heartbreaking,” Allen said. “It was very disappointing. But at the same time, you have to reflect on yourself before you watch the film and before you walk out of the locker room. Did I do everything I could have done to give the team the best chance to win? For myself, personally, I felt that I left everything out there. I was prepared to die on the field. I was going to do everything I could.”

  1. Hayden Rucci

Has to step up and take veteran tight end Clay Cundiff’s place after his possible season-ending injury against Ohio State. Big role to fill. Rucci has only caught a couple of passes at the collegiate level.

  1. Skyler Bell

Creative and nifty wide receiver. Caught four of his eight targets in last Saturday’s game. His 108 receiving yards and two touchdowns against New Mexico State make him a threat. He leads Wisconsin wide receivers in receptions (12) and receiving yards (201).

  1. Isaac Guerendo

Had a 38-yard kickoff return against Ohio State. Even though he may not be as involved on offense, he can be counted on as a kick returner. Has been used in the passing game quite a bit, among running backs.

  1. Keeanu Benton

Consistent nose tackle and a player who has shown up every single game. Most combined tackles among d-linemen. Hopefully, he can continue his five-tackle stat-line from the Ohio State game!
