Badger linebackers amping up their sack attack

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin defense lived up to Jim Leonhard’s standard in just about every category in 2020 except one, sacking the quarterback.

The Badgers finished with 11 total sacks last season. In 2019, both Zack Baun and Chris Orr finished with 11.5 or more. So this spring, it’s been all about violent hands and improving their “get off” to improve their numbers in the backfield.
