Wisconsin senior NT Beau Allen will attend the East-West Shrine game.
Prior to the season, Allen was called the key to the Badgers shift in defensive alignments. Allen earned the starting role in 2012. The senior only recorded two tackles for loss this season, but his job isn't to penetrate and disrupt. It is to hold blockers and let Chris Borland run free at the second level.

Wisconsin senior NT Beau Allen is "the key" to the Badgers' switch from a 4-3 defensive alignment to a 3-4, according to's Mike Huguenin.

Allen currently weighs around 320 pounds after playing last season at 335. Coaches apparently wanted him to slim down this season, and Allen continues to recover from offseason ankle surgery. "As with all nose tackles, Allen's main job will be to hold up at the point of attack and, hopefully, take on two blockers, something he really hasn't been asked to do before," Huguenin writes.
