Badgers airing it out under Chryst

Posted: Updated:

The Badger football team jumped back into the top-25 after its 58-nothing win over Miami (Ohio). 

Wisconsin is 24th in the latest Associated Press poll.

They will host Troy this Saturday.

For years, Wisconsin's been a run first offense. But so far this year, that hasn't really been the case. Joel Stave's thrown at least 30 passes in the first two games, something he only did once all of last year. The goal is always to have a balanced attack but Stave doesn't mind airing it out.

"Its definitely been fun, it's been fun to go out and compete and be able to throw 30 times a game or whatever it's been. It's been a lot of fun to be able to do that, I've got a lot of faith in the guys around me and I've got a lot of faith in Coach Chryst and his offense," Stave said.

"My goal is always are you doing the best for this group and fits this group.  Some games you throw to run.  Some games you run to throw.  But I don't get caught up in trying to be something or another," said head coach Paul Chryst.  

Stave threw for 236 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's win.
