He punted for more than 3,000 yards in both 1998 and 2000, and has three of the four best seasons in the school record book as far as punting average is concerned.
Ken DeBauche: A four-year starter for the Badgers from 2004-2007, Ken DeBauche holds Wisconsin’s record for most punting yards in a single game, 514 in 2006 against Michigan. He has the highest average yards per punt over the course of a season — his 2005 year — with 44.8 yards per punt.
Behind only Kevin Stemke, DeBauche in his career is second all time in punting average (42.5 career punting average).
