Second Quarter

7-0 Wisconsin

13 plays, 77 yards, 5:22 TOP, 9:45 left

Troy Fumagalli 7-yard pass from Joel Stave (Rafael Gaglianone kick)

Key Play: With the wind in their face, Paul Chryst waved off going for a 47-yard field goal on fourth-and-2. UW rewarded that gamble when tight end Troy Fumagalli caught a 4-yard pass to the Nebraska 25. Jazz Peavy's diving 16-yard catch on third-and-15, giving UW a first down at the 14, was equally as big.


14 plays, 77 yards, 6:56 TOP, 2:40 left

Tommy Armstrong 7-yard run (Drew Brown kick)

Key Play: De'Mornay Pierson-El found plenty of separation in one-on-one coverage against Sojourn Shelton, getting Nebraska to Wisconsin's 25-yard line with a 19-yard completion on third-and-7.

14-7 Nebraska

5 plays, 62 yards, 1:29 TOP, :31 left

Stanley Morga 42-yard pass from Tommy Armstrong (Brown kick)

Key Play: In one-on-one coverage with Morgan, Sojourn Shelton never turned his head around to the play. Morgan caught the pass with Shelton in his face in the end zone, drawing a flag for pass interference as an insult to injury.

FG Rafael Gaglianone 45

Key Play: Stave's receivers are approaching 10 drops in the game but Eric Steffes didn't let him down, as his 15-yard gain put the Badgers into field goal range.

11 plays, 84 yards, 4:32 TOP, 10:08 left

Alec Ingold 1-yard run (Gaglianone kick)

20-14 Wisconsin

5 plays, 40 yards, 2:20 TOP, 6:17 left
