The days are creeping by leading up to Wisconsin’s much-anticipated season opener against LSU at Lambeau Field.
On Friday, the Badgers gave their fans more news to munch on in the form of the season’s first full depth chart.

As coach Paul Chryst announced on Thursday, senior quarterback Bart Houston fills the top line as the starting quarterback after beating out redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook.
Other notables include freshman Anthony Lotti slotted as the starting punter and a pair of freshmen defensive backs in the two-deep: cornerback Caesar Williams and safety Patrick Johnson.
Up front, Conor Sheehy has one defensive end spot nailed down while the other is listed as “Chikwe Obasih OR Alec James.”
In the wake of preseason All-American Dan Voltz’s retirement, the left guard spot also remains up in the air, with sophomore Micah Kapoi and redshirt freshman Jon Dietzen both listed as potential starters.
Linebacker T.J. Edwards is nowhere to be found as he continues to recover from a foot injury.
#Badgers depth chart: T.J. Edwards not on the initial depth chart. Not a good sign for him playing against LSU.
