  • Senior receiver Lee Evans' nine receptions for 214 yards against the Akron Zips was the third 200-yard plus receiving game of his career. The 99-yard touchdown reception he had in the fourth quarter set a new UW record and tied the Big Ten record for longest pass completion. Evans has now caught a pass in a school record 27 straight games.


  • Anthony Davis's 29 carries for 247 yards moved him into third place on the UW all-time career rushing list. Davis's 3,435 yards moved him past former UW greats Alan Ameche, Terrell Fletcher, and Brent Moss. Davis now has four 200-plus yard games in his career and the 247 yards against the Zips was the second highest of his career. The three touchdowns Davis picked up moved him up to fourth on the career rushing touchdown list with 28. Davis's 200-yard game is the first time a back has run more than 200 yards against Akron since 1999.


  • Badger quarterback Jim Sorgi's 281 passing yards is the best effort of his career. He completed 14 of 25 for two touchdowns and had one pass intercepted.


  • The Wisconsin win over Akron gave Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez his 94th career win. Only nine coaches in Big Ten history have won 100 games at a single institution.


  • Junior defensive back Jim Leonhard picked up his first interception of the season. Leonhard led the nation last season with 11 interceptions. His twelfth career interception has tied him with former teammate Mike Echols for fifth place on the all-time school list.


  • Akron quarterback Charlie Frye threw for 372 yards, the fifth time in his career he has thrown for more than 300 yards.  The Ryan Aiello interception, the first of his career, snapped Frye's streak of 106 passing attempts without an interception.
