MADISON, Wis. (AP) Faith and family mean everything to Quintez Cephus, and for 16 months, the Wisconsin wide receiver needed every bit of his faith and every member of his family more than ever.
Cephus and 10th-ranked Wisconsin (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten, No. 8 College Football Playoff) are one win away from capturing their first Big Ten championship since 2012. The Badgers will face No. 2 Ohio State (12-0, 9-0, No. 1 CFP) in a rematch for the conference title Saturday in Indianapolis.
But four months ago, football was gone, and Cephus' fate rested in the hands of a jury in Dane County, Wisconsin.
