Northwestern vS. Wisconsin live stream. Week 5 primer: Northwestern at Wisconsin highlights the slate, Northwestern releases depth chart for Week 5 vs. Wisconsin
The headliner is Northwestern at Wisconsin. The game has lost some hue, as the Wildcats already have a loss having been beaten down 41-17 at Duke in Week 2. Still, the arrival of conference play means everyone has a clean slate. The Badgers’ slate already is clean, as Wisconsin is off to a 3-0 start … and looking every bit the best team in the West. This will be a chance for NU to send a message and show it is a legit contender.
The only change from the depth chart against Bowling Green is at wide receiver. Jalen Brown’s injury suffered late in the first half will apparently sideline the Oregon graduate transfer. He is replaced by true freshman Jace James, the sixth first-year to crack the two-deep. There have been no updates on the status of Brown or linebacker Jango Glackin, who exited the Bowling Green game with an injury as well.
Northwestern’s Clayton Thorson vs. Wisconsin’s Alex Hornibrook. Thorson is hitting 63 percent of his passes for 842 yards. In his last game, a 49-7 win vs. Bowling Green, Thorson hit 23-of-30 passes for 370 yards with two TDs. Hornibrook is No. 1 in the Big Ten in passing efficiency, hitting 70 percent of his passes for 701 yards eight touchdowns and a pick. The sophomore was sensational the last time out, hitting 18-of-19 passes for 256 yards and four TDs in a 40-6 win at BYU.
