MADISON, Wis. (AP) Linebacker Jack Cichy, the leading tackler for No. 11 Wisconsin, will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
The injury is the latest setback for a defense that has weathered adversity to remain one of the stingiest units in the country.
The Badgers (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) are ranked fourth in the country in scoring defense (14.3 points per game) and ninth in total defense (300.6 yards). They play No. 7 Nebraska on Saturday night at Camp Randall Stadium.
