The sleeping giant that was the Wisconsin Badgers offense from a season ago woke up on Saturday, as the Badgers defeated the UTEP Minters 37-26 in Madison.
Perhaps it was a result of switching quarterbacks. Perhaps it was the return of No. 1 receiver Jared Abbrederis to the lineup. Whatever it was, it was about time Wisconsin put up a crooked number.
Most of the second half spelled trouble for the Badgers as they allowed UTEP to crawl back into the game. Montee Ball was knocked out with a head injury, and the defense conceded some big plays, but Wisconsin reeled off 14 points in 15 seconds of play to put the game away late.
Let the arguments commence as we grade all 22 Badger starters after their victory over the Miners.
