Quotes

Wisconsin Defensive Lineman O'Brien Schofield: "It just was a lack of focus in the second half. We stopped them pretty much the whole game, and they were just able to come some scores on a couple of plays. I feel like we still battled out throughout the whole game. We out-played them. We just didn't win."

Wisconsin Quarterback Scott Tolzien: "It was a completely different ball game than it was in the first half. Turnovers shot us in the foot. It was the case last week and it was again this week. I take it all on myself. Protection was good. It was just boneheaded decisions that killed me. We just battle ourselves, and we need to not do that. We just have to learn from that."
