Wisconsin will be without two key offensive pieces as the Badgers try to win the Big Ten title against Ohio State on Saturday night in Indianapolis. Running back Bradrick Shaw (left leg) and tight end Zander Neuville (right leg) were both listed out for the season in Wisconsin’s injury report on Friday, so they would also miss a bowl game or potential College Football Playoff run.

Shaw totaled 365 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns on the season, taking carries behind freshman sensation Jonathan Taylor. A sophomore, Shaw rushed for a season-best 47 yards and a touchdown against Iowa on Nov. 11.
Neuville caught 9 passes for 81 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2017. He was also hurt in the first half against the Gophers last week.
Both Shaw and Neuville were listed as questionable earlier in the week. Neither players’ absence will alter the Badgers’ game plan too much for Saturday night, but Wisconsin’s depth took a hit entering the team’s biggest game of the season.
