The Wisconsin football team expects to be without right tackle Josh Oglesby for tomorrow's home finale against Michigan.

He injured a knee tendon against Indiana last week and has done very little at practice this week.

Coach Bret Bielema says Oglesby's status won't be determined until Saturday but it's likely that Jake Bscherer will get the start at right tackle.

Back-up safety Kevin Claxton is expected to return against the Wolverines, after missing last week's game while getting over a concussion.

Saturday is also Senior Day and defensive players Chris Maragos and O'Brien Schofield said they wished they could be around for another year.

Maragos is in his first season as a starter at free safety, and Schofield has emerged this year as one of the Big Ten's top defensive ends.

Schofield said things are just starting to come together as he's about to leave. And he's especially fired up about facing Michigan, who overcame a 19-0 halftime lead to beat the Badgers in Ann Arbor a year ago.

Michigan comes in at 1-5 in the conference and 5-5 overall.

The Badgers are 4-2 in the Big Ten, and 7-2 overall.
