Wisconsin's Borland out against Buckeyes
By Adam Rittenberg
Wisconsin junior linebacker Chris Borland will miss today's game against Ohio State because of a hamstring injury.
Borland sustained the injury last week against Indiana. He had planned to test out the leg in warmups but isn't dressed for the game. Conor O'Neill will get the start at outside linebacker alongside senior Mike Taylor, while Ethan Armstrong slides inside for the Badgers.
The hope is Borland returns in time for the Big Ten title game Dec. 1. He ranks in the top 11 in the Big Ten in tackles (82), sacks (4.5), tackles for loss (9) and forced fumbles (3). Big loss for the Badgers.
