QB Russell Wilson

Wisconsin, Sr.

Last week: 23-of-32 passing for 347 yards, three TDs and one INT; five rushes for 37 yards in 49-7 win over Northern Illinois.

Season: 50-of-66 passing for 791 yards, eight TDs and one INT; 11 rushes for 110 yards and one TD.

Wisconsin is a run-oriented team, and that doesn't figure to change, but Wilson is adding a rarely seen wrinkle to the offense. His 347 passing yards made him just the ninth Badger to throw for 300 yards -- the first since 2008 -- and his 384 total yards were the fifth highest in school history. He'll get one more chance to fine tune things before Wisconsin opens up Big Ten play against Nebraska as it hosts South Dakota, which ranks 90th out of 121 FCS schools in passing offense (242.6 ypg).

Next up: Saturday vs. South Dakota
