The Defense for Badgers Football
It’s hard to argue when a player takes home the Big Ten Player of the Week honors. Hunter Wohler had a stellar game for the Badgers, helping to hold the Eagles down to just 14 points. He had 10 tackles, a sack, and, notably, two interceptions that helped stop Georgia Southern in the red zone.
