Wisconsin linebacker Vince Biegel underwent surgery Thursday night to have a screw inserted for a cracked foot, his father, Rocky, told me. He said he hopes Biegel is out only 2-4 weeks. The news comes as a devastating blow ahead of No. 8 Wisconsin's game against No. 4 Michigan. Biegel has started 46 career games with 32 starts.

No love for Wisconsin

Wisconsin is 4-0. On The Rocks doesn't think the Badgers are getting the respect they deserve. They react to the idea that some think Michigan is 'a lock' this weekend.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Key matchup to watch in the Wisconsin-Michigan showdown: the Badgers' secondary vs. the Wolverines' receivers. None of Wisconsin's starters in the secondary is over 5-foot-11, while Michigan can throw to Amara Darboh (6-2) and Jehu Chesson (6-3), not to mention 6-6 TE Jake Butt. Wisconsin's defense has been impossible to run against, so the passing game will be crucial for Michigan.
