Editor's note: This is the last in a
nine-part series examining each of
Michigan's 1981 Big Ten opponen-
ts. This series was written by Daily
football reporters Mark Mihanovic,
treg DeGulis, Buddy Moorehouse,
and Drew Sharp.,
"With just one victory and we're
on our way ... "
With an opening game 'victory over
the Michigan Wolverines, Wisconsin
football moved from the Dark Ages to
its Renaissance, or so it was thought.
The exuberance that occurred in
Madison after the Michigan win let
boast of two offensive stars who are
emerging as Big Ten statistical
leaders. Sophomore quarterback Jess
Cole is the conference leader in pass ef-
ficiency and total offense. Cole has con-
nected on 20 Qf 37 -passes for 54 percent
and a Big Ten-leading 8.6 yards per
completion. The Badger quarterback
has also thrown for three touchdowns
and has compiled a 142.4-point rating,
both tops in the conference.
Cole's talents are not limited to
passing, however, as the Wisconsin
signal-caller appears among the
rushing leaders, as well. Cole is sixth in
the Big Ten in running yardage with1105,
so combined with his passing, he is the
conference leader in total offense,
averaging 212 yards per game.
JOINING COLE in the backfield is
sophomore Chucky Davis, the winner of
is expected to be highly improved over
last year, which was their strong
point," he said. "They're experienced,
they are big, they are physical, and
they can run and hustle."
Against UCLA, though, the Badger
defense gave up 31 points, prompting
Wisconsin defensive end coach Mike
Nelson to admit, "We made a few key
mistakes defensively which allowed
UCLA to run up 31 points."
This week the Broncos of Western
Michigan invade Camp Randall
Stadium for the Wisconsin
Homecoming, so the Badger defense
should not be tested as severely as it
has in the past two weeks.

name all too familiar to Wolverine fans,

Vanden Boom played a major part in
stifling Steve Smith and the Michigan
offense two Saturdays ago by intercep-
ting three Smith aerials.

Last weekend, however, the Badgers
quietly dropped back down to earth in
their 3113 loss to highly-touted UCLA.
Despite the setback to the Bruins,
though, it appears that Wisconsin has
added a new dimension to its football
program - offense.
IN 1980 the Badgers scored six points
or fewer in Six contests, with an em-
barrassing total of four shutouts. Since
1977, Wisconsin has been blanked 11
times, so Badger followers have grown
accustomed to a lack of offensive

Player of the Game honors against
Michigan. Davis is fifth in Big Ten
rushing with 106 yards and first in
receiving with 10 catches, putting him
fifth in the conference in all-purpose
running (99 yards per game).
With all the hoopla surrounding the
exploits of the rejuvenated offense, the
Badger defense has gone a bit un-
noticed, certainly a turnaround from
1980 when that part of the game is all
people in Madison would talk about.
Last year the Wisconsin defense
finished 11th nationally against the run
and third in the Big Ten in total defense,
yielding 331.9 yards per game.
Michigan offensive line coach Paul
Schudel expects further improvement
from Badger defenders. "Their defense
