Aside from quarterback Michael Penix Jr., the most notable name on that list is defensive lineman Demarcus Elliott. He would have been very useful vs. the Badgers’ run heavy offense.
Penix Jr. is out for the season with a knee injury he suffered last week.
Here’s Wisconsin’s list of inactives:
WR Stephan Bracey
RB Isaac Guerendo
WR Danny Davis
WR Adam Krumholz
CB Semar Melvin
OL Cormac Sampson

Perhaps the most notable thing about this list is the lack of quarterback Jack Coan. Last year’s starting QB is suiting up for the first time this season after suffering a foot injury in the offseason.
Not having receiver Danny Davis will also impact the Badgers’ offense. However, receiver Kendric Pryor is expected to play today after missing some time with an injury.
Wisconsin has won 10 straight games vs. the Hoosiers.
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ET and ABC will have the broadcast.
