On a 3rd-down play from the one yard line against Wake Forest on Wednesday, Wisconsin’s Leo Chenal led the way for fullback Mason Stokke to find the end zone to close the Badgers deficit against the Demon Deacons to a touchdown.

Chenal has been a dominant force for the Badgers defense this season, stepping up as a starter. The sophomore put on a show during Wisconsin’s 20-17 overtime victory over Minnesota to close out the regular season.
With a career high 13 tackles, five for a loss and two sacks, also notching her first career forced fumble, the game made Chenal the first Wisconsin player to post five tackles for loss in a game since 2017.
