Vince Biegel wants his turn to lead the Badgers defense.
Moments after celebrating Wisconsin's 23-21 win over U.S.C. in the National Funding Holiday Bowl, the Wisconsin Rapids native said he plans to return for his redshirt senior season in 2016.
"I've been born and raised in Wisconsin my whole life. I rooted for the Badgers growing up, so to be able to put on the Badger uniform one more year to finish out my senior season on the right note and to lead these guys, be a leader on this team like I've always dreamed of... I'm looking forward to that. I'm excited what this team can hold next year," Biegel said.
Biegel said he felt it was the best decision to return to the NCAA's top scoring defense instead of testing the NFL Draft waters.
Wisconsin will return top tackler T.J. Edwards and bowl game standout Jack Cichy next season.
