No 5 Wisconsin wins slugfest against No 19 MI 24-10

MI outgained Wisconsin in the first half, but also lost a fumble on the Badgers' 1-yard line and gave up a sloppy 50-yard punt return score in the first half.

Brandon Brown: Michigan needs a big win against a ranked team on the road and they'll have a chance this weekend in Madison.

Trailing 7-0 in the second quarter, Wolverines quarterback Brandon Peters hooked up with Donovan Peoples-Jones on what would have been a touchdown...had the referees got the call correct.

Michigan's Ben Mason tied things up before halftime with a 1-yard touchdown run.

Both defensive lines controlled the action following the break, with Mike McCray and T.J. Edwards trading sacks to end the opening drive for both teams.

After taking that 10-7 lead, MI managed a total of 39 yards on its final four possessions.

MI allowed back-to-back touchdowns and lost starting quarterback Brandon Peters to injury during a 4-minute span of the third quarter and never came back, dropping a 24-10 decision at No. 5 Wisconsin on Saturday.

Linebacker Leon Jacobs forced MI quarterback Brandon Peters to fumble at the Wisconsin 2 in the second quarter. When the smoke cleared, it was 21-10 and the Badgers were in control.

However, U-M's offense probably hasn't seen a defense like Wisconsin's either, and it's hard to envision how their underwhelming unit is going to put points on the board.

According to officials, the slain IAF commando was part of the joint team that took on militants in the village. A Garud commando of the Indian Air Force (IAF) was also martyred in the encounter, said a defence spokesperson.


Badgers freshman running back Jonathan Taylor had 19 carries for 132 yards and recorded his eighth 100-plus-yard effort of the season. Here's what we learned from the Badgers taking down MI on Saturday at Camp Randall.

Hornibrook, who has accumulated 18 passing touchdowns and 2,006 yards this season, said his ability to shrug off mistakes and move on have been critical components of his game.

The Wolverines are still in the hunt for a Big Ten East title, but they need to win and hope for some help from other teams.

Key play: Hornibrook's two third-down throws on Wisconsin's first third-quarter touchdown drive were big.

Hornibrook persevered despite throwing his 13th interception of the season in the second half against the Wolverines (8-3, 5-3 Big Ten).

Hello, friends. It's Week 12 of the college football season, aka the worst Saturday on the schedule. "We certainly knew we were going to have to make plays down the field".

Wisconsin's defense had a say, too. As long as he's healthy, the Wolverines should feel optimistic for the future with Peters leading a stacked roster.

"They did such a good job of getting after the quarterback", Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said.

While that's rarely a problem for Wisconsin, the Badgers have had to replace a lot of stars on the line over the past few years and showed some cracks on Saturday. Still, Ohio State's front seven is looming as a major challenge, and the offensive line could be in trouble in a potential playoff game against a team like Alabama or Clemson.
