Could the Wisconsin Badgers Football team Face Minnesota Without Hunter Wohler?
Unfortunately for Wisconsin football and Hunter Wohler, the severity of the injury could mean the safety will miss their upcoming game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers on November 25th. At this point in time, it is unknown whether or not Wohler will be able to play in what will be a huge game for the Badgers.
The star safety will likely need to go through a week of practice before the team is able to make a decision. If Wisconsin is able to defeat Nebraska, the team will finally become bowl eligible. However, a loss will put plenty of pressure on the team for their game against the Golden Gophers.
