Last game: 34-10 loss vs. Illinois
Next game: Oct. 8 @ Northwestern

Braelon Allen totaled 2 yards of offense on eight carries against the Illini just one week after going for 165 rushing yards against the Buckeyes. The biggest story for the Badgers is the firing of head coach, Paul Chryst and what the plans are moving forward.

What happened to Wisconsin? Paul Chryst, gone. Braelon Allen, no impact against Illinois. Graham Mertz threw two interceptions in Week 6. Now the Badgers will hope to rekindle the fire on the season against the worst team in the Big Ten and likely will not be facing another top 25 opponent for the rest of the season. Wisconsin might not even get to a bowl game this season!
