2013 Season Outlook
The only team in the nation to win its conference in each of the last three years, Wisconsin enters the 2013 season riding the longest active bowl streak of any Big Ten program — 11 straight seasons — after playing in its third-consecutive Rose Bowl. The Badgers begin the season ranked No. 23 in the preseason USA Today Coaches Poll, marking the sixth time in seven years that UW will enter the season ranked. UW returns 14 of its 22 regular starters from 2012, eight on offense and six on defense. In addition, the Badgers return both placekickers from last year, their punter and long snapper.
