Hot 11: Minnesota

Though there were some hostile moments following the game, UW's 41-23 win over Minnesota was somewhat tame Now, with a critical game with the nation's No. 1 just days away, it's time for the popular weekly feature: The Hot 11.

The fifth installment of the 2010 regular season is based on momentum and individual play this season. One bad game won't necessarily move a player off, but it could cause a player to slide down the board as new players start to emerge.

By no means is the list perfect, that is why BadgerBlitz.com encourages everyone to head over to The Badgers' Den to offer their own opinions.

Note: The number in parentheses is the number of points the player got based on a voting panel of BadgerBlitz.com staff members.

Rank Player The Word Last Game
1 James White, RB (41) White has been on fire for the past three weeks. During that span, the true freshman has rushed for 361 yards and eight touchdowns. Against the Gophers, White rushed for 118 yards and two scores. 1
2 John Clay, RB (38) After seeinghis 100-yard game streak snapped at Michigan State, Clay got it rolling again against the Gophers. His 111-yard performance was good enough to make him the eighth member of the 3,000-yard rushing club at UW. 3
3 Lance Kendricks, TE (33) Kendricks quietly put together yet another solid effort against the Gophers. This time, five catches were good enough for a team high 75 yards receiving. 2
4 Mike Taylor, LB (28) Taylor continues to get back to the same form he was playing at prior to his knee injury. Against the Gophers, Taylor logged three tackles-for-loss and played arguably his best, most complete game, of the year. 6
5 Scott Tolzien, QB (21) Against Michigan State, Tolzien completed just 44 percent of his passes in the loss. Against Minnesota, the senior signal caller completed 74 percent of his passes in a blowout win. 5
T6 J.J. Watt, DE (20) Watt didn't record as many tackles as people have become accustomed to, but he was still a force to be reckoned with, particularly in obvious passing situations. T9
T6 Culmer St. Jean, MLB (20) St. Jean led the team with 10 tackles against the Gophers. Midway through the season, St. Jean leads the team with 33 tackles. N/A
8 Jared Abbrederis, WR (15) Abbrederis caught three passes for 33 yards and logged his first career touchdown reception against Minnesota. T9
9 John Moffitt, LG (13) It's obvious, but Clay and White would not be having the success they're having if not for the stalwarts on the left side of the line like Moffitt and Carimi. 9
10 Gabe Carimi, LT (10) Much like Moffitt, Carimi is a critical piece in both the rushing and passing attacks. He helped two running backs top 100 yards and gave Tolzien time to throw for 223 yards in the win over the Gophers. 8
11 Peter Konz, DE (9) During White's third-quarter touchdown run, Konz sealed the score with a punishing block on the Minnesota cornerback. RV
