Beckum will be back

MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin football fans would love another season of watching tight end Travis Beckum in a Badger uniform. So would head coach Bret Bielema.

Turns out Beckum would, too.

The 2007 first-team All-American said Thursday that he has decided to return to the Badgers for his senior season.

"Playing at Wisconsin in front of the greatest fans in college football is something I want to continue doing for one more year," said Beckum, a finalist for the 2007 John Mackey Award. "I looked into my options and found the best one is right here with this university. I'm enjoying being a Badger and can't wait for our bowl game in Tampa, as well as for next season. I'm glad this decision is behind me and I'm looking forward to another year at Camp Randall."
