There's an old adage you often hear from football coaches, 'Don't let a team beat you two weeks in a row.' In examining what kind of carryover facing a very physical opponent can have, I looked at the toll it takes facing the Stanford Cardinal.
Everyone knows that Stanford's front seven is one of the toughest in all of college football but the 6-foot-2, 205-pound redshirt junior showed the all-around game Saturday night to draw scouts attention, as well.
Wisconsin and No. 6 Stanford are two of only three programs in the country that are playing in their third-consecutive BCS game. Stanford is 1-1, and the Badgers have lost the Rose Bowl the past two years.
