A collection of the most interesting quotes and thoughts from Badgers players and coaches during spring practices.

The University of Wisconsin football program announced Monday a future home-and-home series against Utah.

The pair of games begin in seven years, when the Badgers host the Utes on Sept. 16, 2028, and UW will travel to Salt Lake City on Sept. 10, 2033. The 2028 matchup is the first game the Badgers have scheduled for that season.

UW holds a 2-1 record all-time against Utah but hasn’t played the Utes since 1996, when the Badgers won the Copper Bowl 38-10. The other two meetings, in 1961 and 1987, were in Madison.

The Badgers have a home-and-home series planned against one of the Utes’ Pac-12 Conference counterparts, Washington State, in the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

Here’s a look at UW’s scheduled nonconference games against Power Five opponents in upcoming seasons:

  • 2021: vs. Notre Dame (at Soldier Field)
  • 2022: Washington State
  • 2023: at Washington State
  • 2024: Alabama
  • 2025: at Alabama
  • 2026: Pittsburgh
  • 2027: at Pittsburgh
  • 2028: Utah
  • 2029: at UCLA

Making headway and earning reps at inside linebacker for the loaded Badgers is a difficult task, but sophomore Tatum Grass was able to do that last season despite being a redshirt freshman walk-on and still new to the position.
