Joe the Show is Must-See TV

Joe Schobert is on a tear. He’s making his case for end-of-season awards and is terrorizing opposing quarterbacks.

Last week against Iowa he did everything he could possibly have done for the Badgers outside of scoring the go ahead touchdown. Maybe the Badgers should have put him on offense….

So far this season Schobert has nine sacks and 13 tackles for loss — both figures lead the nation. He has 36 total tackles, four forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

Simply put, Joe the Show is Must-See TV, and that show is playing this Saturday in Lincoln.

The Badgers will unleash Schobert on the Nebraska offensive line, and coupled with the strong play the rest of the defense has shown this season, should give the Huskers fits on Saturday.
