Wisconsin linebacker Leo Chenal, had a huge game in the Badgers 30-13 victory over No. 25 Purdue. As a result, he’s receiving some national attention.

Chenal had had 9 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, and 3.5 sacks in the Badgers’ 30-13 victory in West Lafayette. His performance Saturday has garnered him Defensive National Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Foundation.

The Badgers, who have not lost to Purdue since 2003, were dominant in their victory. Chenal has been like a man on a mission of late.

Last Week in the Badgers victory over Army, he had 17 tackles and had the game-winning strip at the end of the game to save the victory for the Badgers.

Chenal is well on his way to making the first-team Big Ten team and possibility Defensive Player of the Year for the conference.

His play of late has led the Badgers to back-to-back victories and maybe has put them back on the road to getting to a bowl game this year.
