Before our team checks out Paul Chryst’s second team Monday, here are five nuggets for the Badgers entering the 2016 season.

1. Wisconsin surrendered just 13.7 points per game last season en route to becoming the first Big Ten team to lead FBS in scoring defense since 2007 (Ohio State; 12.8).

2. Wisconsin’s 150.3 yards rushing per game last season was its lowest average since 1995 (128.9).

3. LB Vince Biegel brings a career 33.5 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks into his final campaign.

4. In going 10-3 last season, Paul Chryst became the fourth Wisconsin coach to win 10 games in a season in the last 10 years.

5. Wisconsin’s three Big Ten titles the last seven seasons are tied with Michigan State for the most during that span.
