Wisconsin will be without two best wide receivers for showdown vs. Northwestern
This is bad news to start the day for Wisconsin.
The Gophers will reportedly be without their two top receivers against Northwestern on Saturday afternoon.
The #Badgers top two wide receivers – Kendric Pryor and Danny Davis – will NOT play at Northwestern today. Second-string linebacker Mike Maskalunas and three-string tailback Isaac Guerendo are also OUT

Danny Davis and Kedric Pryor are second and third on the team in receiving yards with 78 and 71, respectively. Davis also has a touchdown this season. Tight end Jake Ferguson is the overall leader with 11 catches for 123 yards and four touchdowns.
Wisconsin is going to need all the help it can get against Northwestern’s secondary. The Wildcats have only allowed three second half points all season long.
Both teams are undefeated and looking for control of the Big Ten West.
Kick off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
