It's time for another update on the playing time and statistics of the younger players on the roster of the Wisconsin Badgers.

Due to a banged-up backfield, Alec Ingold was given a big opportunity to play as a freshman in 2015 and while he didn't rack up the yards, he was successful as a short-yardage back and scored six rushing touchdowns.

This year, however, Wisconsin's backfield group is in better shape and Ingold's role has been as the backup fullback to Austin Ramesh. Ingold had gotten a handful of carries this year -- 13 entering last Saturday -- but nothing compared to last season, when he had 49 carries.

But with Ramesh hurt, Ingold has gotten more playing time and against Purdue he had a season-high four carries, scoring a touchdown on a 1-yard run.

Ingold's biggest play, though, was a 19-yard touchdown reception from Bart Houston in which he was wide open. Why was Ingold so open? Well, Wisconsin ran 30 plays on first downs against the Boilermakers and ran the ball on 29 of those.

Yes, Ingold's TD was the only pass Wisconsin executed on first down. Certainly, a pass to a nearly 240-pound fullback --- who had five career catches -- down the field couldn't have been expected. But Ingold now has two receiving touchdowns, which is tied for second on the Badgers.

Here's the complete rundown of young Badgers with season stats:
