01/02/2012 - Scouting the Wisconsin pass defense: Wisconsin's pass defense is something that Oregon might look to exploit. Sure, Wisconsin's numbers are inflated somewhat due to several blowouts, forcing opponents to spend most of the game passing the ball in hopes of mounting a comeback. Wisconsin was able to hold down its numbers, allowing just 144.5 yards passing per game. The Badgers have dealt with injuries along the defensive line and secondary, affecting chemistry and leading to several backups playing key roles. But the Badgers have stopped teams from putting up big numbers due to a solid linebacker corps and deep roster. Oregon's speed on offense and athleticism might be the toughest test for Wisconsin's defense. The Badgers did a great job limiting Northern Illinois' high-octane offense earlier this season, but Oregon's blend of experience and talent equals one of the best offensives in the country. But Wisconsin had trouble stopping Michigan State's group of speedy receivers in both games, something that could forecast a long day for UW's defense against the Ducks. - The Sports Xchange

07/12/2011 - 2011 JIM THORPE AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Antonio Fenelus, Wisconsin, CB, has been named one of 37 players selected to the Preseason Thorpe Award watch list for the 2011 college football season. The Thorpe Award, given annually to the nation's top defensive back, is one of the most coveted awards in college football and is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2011. The Badgers' team leader in interceptions and passes defended as a junior last season, Fenelus earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the league's media. He started all 13 games for the Badgers, snaring four interceptions and defending 11 passes. Fenelus also was responsible for one fumble and recovered two others in addition to racking up 56 total tackles out of the secondary. He matched his career high with nine total stops in UW's win over Purdue on Nov. 6, the same game in which he recovered a fumble and returned an interception for a touchdown. The performance against Purdue earned Fenelus one of his two co-defensive player of the week honors in 2010. Fenelus is one of three returning starters in the Badgers' secondary for 2011, where he is joined by fellow seniors Devin Smith at the other cornerback spot and Aaron Henry at safety. - Wisconsin football
