The Goose is loose: Wisconsin DB announces return for matchup vs. Northwestern
Rachad Wildgoose appears set to return to the field following nearly a month away from the game.
On Wednesday, Wildgoose tweeted about his return to the field. Wildgoose appears to have been one of the players affected by the COVID-19 surge through the Wisconsin program that caused the cancellation of their game against Nebraska and Purdue in Week 2 and Week 3.
The B1G has a 21-day policy for players who test positive for the virus, which is what Wildgoose indicates blelow.
Can’t wait to get back out there Saturday it’s been a long 21 days!

The return of one of their star defensive backs is good news for Wisconsin, who returned to the field this past Saturday in 49-11 win at Michigan. This Saturday, they play at No. 19 Northwestern.
They then play Minnesota the next week followed by No. 9 Indiana before closing out at Iowa on Dec. 12. It is a tough stretch of games for Wisconsin that will make or break their hopes of playing in the Big Ten Championship Game.
The Wisconsin cornerback hasn’t played since Wisconsin’s season opener on Oct. 23, a 45-7 win against Illinois. In that game, the talented junior had three tackles.
Wildgoose played in 10 games with seven starts last year.
