Wisconsin football will see some new faces emerge as playmakers through the rest of the season.

The Wisconsin football program is in a tough spot. Coming off of one of the worst losses in recent memory, the Badgers have to rebound well or they’ll be in a world of hurt in 2019 and beyond. When we look forward to the rest of the year there are good things on the horizon for Wisconsin.

The Badgers have some tough games coming up, and they’re all on the road. There are some cupcakes mixed in that should even things out though. The Badgers will still have to work to hold onto the lead in the Big Ten West, but it can be done. Losing that lead and not participating in the Big Ten Championship, although possible, is not something I think is likely.

Michigan really took it to Wisconsin last weekend. It was hard to imagine a scenario where Wisconsin could come away with that win and the game ended up not even coming close to that. The Badgers were just too outmatched. It’s easy to get carried away in either direction and write it off as a bad game or throw in the towel on the season completely. But that’s not what Wisconsin does.

The Badgers are going to rebound. They just are. They have to. The schedule is laid out in a way that will allow them to build momentum and get their feet back underneath them. That’s what this team needs at this point in the season anyway.

With some cupcakes on deck along with a few opportunities on the road to re-establish their name to the rest of the country, the Badgers are going to see some new names come forth as major contributors.

Here are some things I think we’ll see throughout the last few games on the schedule.
