Badgers go into bye week with quarterback issues and new injuries

The Wisconsin football team goes into its bye week after blowing a big chance to move back into a tie for first place in the Big Ten.

The Badgers had a lead on Saturday before falling to seventh-ranked Iowa 20-10 at home.

It dropped Wisconsin to 2-2 in the conference and 5-2 overall.

And an upset over the Hawkeyes would have put the Badgers in a three-way tie for first in the conference, since Ohio State was upset by Purdue.

But now, Wisconsin is 0-2 against nationally-ranked teams.

And at two games back, the Badgers have all but blown their shot at their first Big Ten championship in a decade.

Wisconsin returns on Halloween at home against Purdue.

They'll have issues at quarterback, after Scott Tolzien threw five interceptions against the Hawkeyes.

And they've got injury problems. Tight end Garrett Graham suffered a concussion, and linebacker Mike Taylor hurt a knee.
