The Wisconsin Badgers finished last season with an impressive 11-3 record. Led by running back Melvin Gordon III, who rushed for 2,587 yards and 29 touchdowns, Wisconsin once again established its identity through its rushing attack. Gordon, who has declared for the 2015 NFL Draft and has drawn comparisons to Jamaal Charles, may be a first round pick in the draft. Gordon ended his college career with a bang by rushing for 251 yards and three touchdowns against Auburn in the Outback Bowl. It was Gordon’s sixth 200+ yard performance of the season. Gordon’s performance helped Wisconsin earn a tightly-contested 34-31 overtime win. It was a bright spot for the Wisconsin program after suffering an embarrassing 59-0 defeat to the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Big-10 Championship game. Wisconsin did not have any answer for quarterback Cardale Jones and Ohio State’s explosive offensive attack.
Entering the 2015 season, Wisconsin must find a way to replace Gordon’s production. Sophomore running back Corey Clement will return and rushed for 949 yards and nine touchdowns in relief of Gordon. Running back, Dare Ogunbowale also showed promise in limited duty. Wisconsin will also lose three of its starters on its offensive line. Wisconsin’s imposes its will by running the ball on its opponents, so its offensive line will need to gel quickly. In addition, Clement will be expected to pick-up where Gordon left off, which may be a tough task for any player. Wisconsin’s season will start with a bang when it travels to AT&T Stadium to face the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The current average price for 2015 Wisconsin football tickets is $214.82. An overview of Wisconsin’s 2015 schedule, which includes games against Alabama and Nebraska, is presented below:
