The Wisconsin Badgers were once again among the conference leaders, finishing 6-2 in the Big Ten and 9-4 overall last season. Wisconsin closed the year in second in its division behind only unbeaten Ohio State. The Badgers defense finished sixth in the nation by allowing just 16.3 points per game.

Redshirt junior running back Melvin Gordon rushed for 1,609 yards in 2013. Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen named redshirt junior Tanner McEvoy as the starting quarterback for the team's season opener against LSU.

Andersen is entering his second season as Wisconsin's head coach.
