Hornibook shows quarterback capabilities against BYU, Badgers grow stronger than ever

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin football team ended their non-conference season in a spectacular fashion against BYU, in large part thanks to quarterback Alex Hornibrook.Many have been doubting Hornibrook’s capabilities throughout the beginning of the season, and the sophomore has been struggling to gain his confidence. Hornibrook already has one interception on his stat sheet, not to mention two sacks from the first game of the season.Football: Wisconsin starts game strong, fails to continue momentumWhen the NCAA scheduled the University of Wisconsin football team to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls, everyone thought that Read…Many thought that Hornibrook was struggling to get back to his standard of play from the previous season, but then came the game against BYU. Not only would Wisconsin’s quarterback get his groove back, but he would go on to break a school record.The star of the game completed 18 of the 19 passes that he threw (94.7 percent completion), throwing for 256 yards and helping Wisconsin earn four touchdowns during the game. Hornibrook now holds a school record for the highest completion percentage in a single-game, with the previous title holder being Darrell Bevell.That same percentage also happens to be the best in the Big Ten during a single game from any quarterback attempting at least 13 passes during the game, and the fifth-highest from a quarterback completing at least 10 passes during a game.It seems as though this road trip was one of the best things that could have happened to Wisconsin, and this team is finally finding their chemistry despite having numerous instances of miscommunication during the first two games of the season. If this work continues, the Badgers should find themselves at the top of the Big Ten in no time.Football: Chryst’s 100th win begins slowly, develops momentum in second halfWhile the first game of the season might have resulted in a win, the University of Wisconsin football team definitely Read…While it might be offenses that win games, the UW defense managed to turn in yet another solid performance in Provo, holding the team to a grand total of six points during the four quarters. This would also be the third time this season that the Badgers managed to hold an offense from scoring during the entire second half of the game.Wisconsin has earned the right to a much needed week off before they welcome Northwestern to Camp Randall to kick off their first Big Ten football game of the season. Northwestern is going to have a hard time holding down this Badger team, who is on their way to becoming one of the best teams in the Big Ten, if not the nation.40  Wisconsin     Final Score     BYU  6last_img read more

Corey Coleman injury update: Giants receiver out for season after tearing ACL

first_img Odell Beckham Jr. wows with spectacular first catch of Browns camp Coleman’s injury came on the same day that Sterling Shepard, the Giants’ top receiver, broke his left thumb. Coach Pat Shurmur, however, isn’t too concerned about Shepard’s injury as he told reporters Friday that surgery will not be required, adding, Shepard will “be back soon.”   Related News After playing two seasons with the Browns, Coleman had brief stints with the Bills and Patriots last year before signing with the Giants’ practice squad last October. He was quickly promoted to the active roster, playing eight games with one start. Throughout his NFL career, he’s had 61 catches for 789 yards and five touchdowns. Landon Collins won’t acknowledge Giants anymore: ‘No point in saying their name’ Sterling Shepard injury update: Giants’ potential No. 1 receiver breaks thumb The Giants’ wide receiver depth took a huge hit during the team’s first practice of training camp Thursday as Corey Coleman suffered a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2019 season, the team announced Friday. The injury is the latest setback in Coleman’s career as the first-round pick out of the 2016 draft has yet to become the dynamic player that many expected he would develop into when he entered the league. Both Coleman and Shepard’s injuries leave questions for the Giants’ depth at wide receiver after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns. New York still has veteran wideouts Golden Tate, Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler that could help fill the void.Coleman’s injury could also give rookie Darius Slayton more opportunity to play, though he has been sidelined with a hamstring injury to start training camp.last_img read more
