NRG Stadium putting down turf for Wisconsin-LSU


Here's our built-in excuse in the event things don't go well in Houston: it was the damn turf! Sarcasm aside, this makes sense considering how much the Texans (the building's main occupants) have invested in the field. It is kinda weird they play two days before the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff and then their next game (the regular-season opener) doesn't come until Sept. 7, but again, this is understandable.

Wisconsin's top under-the-radar players for 2014

Who's going to be this year's Michael Caputo? I will use scientific analysis (read: guessing) to tell you.

Wisconsin backs out of home-and-home with Washington


Buried in a release from Washington announcing a pair of home-and-homes with BYU and Michigan is the fact that Wisconsin has backed out of its own series with the "other" UW. The statement reads: "... due to conflicts with its Big Ten Conference schedule, Wisconsin was forced to cancel its two games with the Huskies, previously scheduled for 2018 and 2021." As Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel points out, the Badgers have four Big Ten home games in 2018 and five in 2021.

UM schedules Washington for home-and-home series


The University of Michigan announced on Wednesday that it will be scheduling the University of Washington for a home-and-home contest beginning in 2020.

Ohio State's Curtis Grant beats out Raekwon McMillan for middle linebacker


According to Dave Biddle and Bucknuts, Ohio State senior linebacker has beaten out true freshman Raekwon McMillan for the starting middle linebacker spot. As of now, Grant has been taking reps with the first team, while McMillan has worked with the second team. I would expect McMillan to earn plenty of playing time on the field this season, so this isn't permanent as plenty can happen during the season and beyond.

Melvin Gordon makes CBS Sports' All-American team


CBS Sports released its preseason All-American list Wednesday, including Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon as one of two running backs alongside Georgia's Todd Gurley. Only a first team was released, so Gordon is the only Badgers representative. The other Big Ten players are Iowa offensive tackle Brandon Scherff, Ohio State defensive tackle Michael Bennett and Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis.
