Against Northwestern, UW receiver Chimere Dike helped the Badgers show a glimpse of the team they expected to be.

Wisconsin players confident they will continue to play winning football

MADISON — Shortly after an emotional victory celebration in the visitors’ locker room at Ryan Field, several Wisconsin players were asked a pointed question:

Is this the type of performance you envisioned and expected before the season?

“We know we’re a good football team,” junior wide receiver Chimere Dike said after UW’s 42-7 win over Northwestern. “But we have to be able to play consistent and clean football.

“I think we did that today and showed a little glimpse of the team we can be.”

That insight helped UW (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) end a two-game losing streak, give interim head coach Jim Leonhard a memorable debut and help players break free from a tumultuous week that began with the dismissal of Paul. Christ.
