Wisconsin has a change in its special teams depth chart entering Iowa week

·2 min read

Wisconsin kick returner Devin Chandler entered the transfer portal after the team’s victory over Army last week. The news came Monday afternoon, so Wisconsin had already released its depth chart for the contest at Purdue.

Both wide receiver Chimere Dike and cornerback Faion Hicks returned kicks for the Badgers on Saturday. Dike took two kicks back for 34 total yards and a 17-yard average, while Hicks’ only return was a fair catch.
