Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in Saturday's 38-31 loss to Penn State in the Big Ten Championship Game.

While Clement put forth several impressive runs -- including a 67-yard scoring run around the left edge in the first quarter -- he will be haunted by one play late. With Wisconsin down seven and facing a fourth-and-short late in the fourth quarter, the 5-foot-11, 227-pound senior took the carry and tried to find wiggle room for the necessary gain. It was not to be, though, as Penn State played his dive perfectly and held him short of the line to gain. The Nittany Lions proceeded to run out the clock. This loss unofficially knocks Wisconsin out of Playoff contention.

Wisconsin redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook (head) is not starting Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game against Penn State.

Hornibrook has been dealing with a head injury sustained against Minnesota last weekend. While he will potentially be available in the Big Ten title tilt, Bart Houston draws the start in his place. Both quarterbacks could see playing time depending on the flow of the game.
Dec 3 - 8:21 PM

Wisconsin redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook is available to play in Saturday's game against Penn State, according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach.

Hornibrook suffered a head injury in the first half of last week's game against Minnesota. Hornibrook and senior Bart Houston have split time at the position with Paul Chryst using a two quarterback system. That might continue in the Big Ten Championship game.

In an updated release of Wisconsin's depth chart on Friday, redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook (head) was once again listed as questionable for Saturday's Big Ten Championship Game.

Wisconsin HC Paul Chryst indicated that both Hornibrook and Bart Houston could potentially see playing time against Penn State on Saturday, though that will depend on Hornibrook's health. At this juncture, it is looking increasingly unlikely that Hornibrook will start the contest. He is dealing with a possible concussion initially suffered against Minnesota last weekend.

Wisconsin redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook (head) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Big Ten Championship game against Penn State.

Hornibrook took a shot to the head in the second quarter of Saturday's win Minnesota, forcing his premature exit from the game. Presumably needing to pass a concussion protocol to get cleared for this game, Hornibrook would cede his post to Bart Houston if he's unable to.

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Saturday's 31-17 win over Minnesota.

The Badgers outscored the Gophers 21-0 in the fourth quarter to seize the must-win game. Clement has now reached the century mark in four straight games and six of his last seven. Heading into the Big 10 Championship game against Penn State, Clement has 1,140 yards and 13 scores on the ground.

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in the school's 49-20 win over Purdue.

Clement has rushed for over 100 yards in five of six contests and will face Minnesota in his final regular season collegiate game. It is a nice final stretch for Clement, who has always displayed talent but dealt with injury after injury last season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline writes that Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement "displays traits of being a feature ball carrier."

"The ability to pick and chose his spots on the inside as well as turn the corner are very impressive," Pauline noted. Clement has increased his profile with a recent spate of strong performances, having rolled past 100 yards rushing in four of his last five games. While Pauline views the Badger senior as a potential No. 1, one NFC North scout recently called the 5-foot-11, 227-pounder "just another back." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein questions Clement's ability to create yardage outside of what is being blocked.
Nov 18 - 3:18 PM

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 123 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 48-3 dismantling of Illinois.

Breeze of a win for the Badgers, who improved to 8-2 with the victory. Clement scored two of his three touchdowns in the first quarter to help boost his squad to a 21-3 lead after one quarter. They would outscore the Illini 27-0 over the next three quarters. The 5-foot-11, 227-pound Clement has now surpassed 100 yards rushing in four of his last five games.
Nov 12 - 6:45 PM

An NFC North scout said that Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement is "just another back."

"I never got the hype on Corey Clement," the scout said. "He's a bull-in-a-china-shop back. I mean, he runs hard, don't get me wrong, but playing in the NFL is about more than running hard." NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein agrees with that sentiment, writing, "He's well-built and physical, but too often becomes a grinder with an inability to consistently create and get yardage beyond what is blocked." Zierlein does not see the 5-foot-11, 227-pounder being drafted prior to Day 3 in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Wisconsin senior RB Corey Clement rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries in the school's 21-7 win over Northwestern.

Clement's rushing totals were critical for a team that managed just 143 passing yards. After a lost 2015 season, this is Clement's fourth 100-plus yard rushing total of the 2016 campaign.
Nov 5 - 4:30 PM

Wisconsin HC Paul Chryst said that redshirt freshman QB Alex Hornibrook will start against Northwestern on Saturday.

Hornibrook and fellow signal-caller Bart Houston both played in Saturday's overtime win over Nebraska. Neither particularly impressed, with Hornibrook completing 10-of-16 passes for 71 yards, a touchdown and an interception and Houston going 4-of-7 for 43 yards and an interception. Neither offered much offensive punch for the Badgers -- and that has been the case all season. Combined, the two quarterbacks have thrown for 1,577 yards (59% completions) with a 9/10 TD/INT ratio through eight games. That Wisconsin currently sits at 6-2 is a marvel of defensive engineering given what has been offered up on the other side of the ball.

Wisconsin redshirt junior RB Dare Ogunbowle rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Saturday's 23-17 overtime win over Nebraska.

Corey Clement predictably led the Badgers in carries with 19, finishing up with 82 yards of his own, but it was Ogunbowle who stole the spotlight. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder averaged 10.9 YPC with a long run of 39 yards. Oh, and then there was the whole "game-winning touchdown thing." Ogunbowle would score from 11 yards out in overtime. The subsequent extra point was missed, leaving a few nervous moments after Nebraska had their crack at the end zone. No matter. Wisconsin's defense held for yet another big win. They improved to 6-2 with the victory. Their two losses have come by a combined 14 points to Michigan and Ohio State.
Oct 29 - 11:05 PM

Wisconsin junior TE Troy Fumagalli is "proving to be a three down player," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Fumagalli snagged seven passes on nine targets for 84 yards in Saturday's loss to Ohio State. Fumagalli leads the team with 23 catches. "Fumagalli has terrific size, shows outstanding blocking prowess and is a legitimate pass catching threat in the short and intermediate field as well as the red zone," Pauline wrote. "Forty times will be important but I could see Fumagalli sliding into the third round if he enters the draft."
Oct 26 - 7:03 PM

Wisconsin redshirt sophomore OLB Jack Cichy will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a torn pectoral.

A seven-game starter this season, Cichy suffered the pectoral tear in Saturday's win over Iowa. Tough loss for the Badgers, as the 6-foot-2, 223-pound redshirt sophomore had been on an out-and-out roll of late. He was named Big Ten Player of the Week for his work against Ohio State two weekends ago (recording 15 tackles, 3.5 TFL, a sack and a forced fumble in the contest) and helped lock down Iowa with 10 tackles prior to going out injured. Overall, his 60 tackles lead the Badgers this season. Leon Jacobs and Ryan Connelly could see extended reps with Cichy out of the picture, but this won't be an easy one to paper over.
