It got somewhat lost among Wisconsin’s 49-11 bludgeoning of Michigan on Saturday evening, but Badgers outside linebacker Nick Herbig earned his first career start due to the absence of Izayah Green-May.

He took advantage of the opportunity.

Herbig led the Badgers with five tackles and three tackles for loss, playing a key role for a defense that held Michigan to just 47 yards rushing a 219 total yards. That effort is more than enough for Herbig, who ranked as the No. 143 overall player in the 2020 class per the 247Sports Composite, to earn True Freshman of the Week honors.
