MADISON, Wis. (AP) First-year coach Paul Chryst and the Wisconsin Badgers are starting to focus on their opener against No. 3 Alabama on Sept. 5 in Arlington, Texas.
"Yesterday the players had off. Today, tomorrow and Saturday we're going to simulate a normal practice work week," Chryst said Thursday. "I liked their attention to details and told the team we want to work on two things the next three days. It's kind of getting used to a work week and also finishing up the details of their specific spots, assignments, technique, whatever that may be, and also starting introducing Alabama. That's the focus of the next couple days."
Senior wide receiver Tanner McAvoy was the latest player to be sidelined by an injury.
