Badgers ready for Big Ten push after bye

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen says a bye week has allowed his players to get their legs back as the 22nd-ranked Badgers renew their regional rivalry at Iowa.

The week off allowed standout linebacker Chris Borland to rest his strained right hamstring. He is expected to play against Iowa.

The Badgers have won two straight conference games after a 31-24 loss at Ohio State. They enter a five-game stretch without a break, including three at home. Wisconsin and Iowa have not met since 2010, when the Badgers salvaged a 31-30 victory.
