Wisconsin Badgers football statistical leaders

The Wisconsin Badgers football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Wisconsin Badgers football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Badgers represent the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the NCAA's Big 10 Conference.

Although Wisconsin began competing in intercollegiate football in 1889, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1946. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1946, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.

Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Badgers have reached a bowl game every year since then, giving recent players an extra game each year to accumulate statistics.

Similarly, the Badgers have played in the Big Ten Football Championship Game four times since its establishment in 2011.These lists are updated through Wisconsin's game against Miami on December 27, 2018.
