CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) No. 6 Wisconsin will find itself in strange surroundings Saturday - somewhere other than Camp Randall Stadium.
After five straight home games, the Badgers will hit the road for the first time since the season opener when they visit Illinois on Saturday. The road game against the Illini (2-4, 0-3 Big Ten) will be the first for Wisconsin (6-0, 3-0) since the opener Aug. 30 at South Florida. The 50-day stretch is the longest of its kind for the program since at least 1946 and the Badgers are eager to jump around a bit somewhere else.
"It's kind of exciting to get out on the road," Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said. "It's always nice to play at someone else's stadium."
