While Rutgers faced third and long after third and long, Wisconsin quickly capitalized on Scarlet Knight blunders to hand them their third straight blowout loss.
“I just left a really frustrated football team right now, said head coach Kyle Flood. “When you have a game like you did today, when you have a three-game stretch like we have, I think that's probably a good thing. We've got to get better. We got to get better as coaches, we got to get better as players.”
Rutgers amassed just 139 yards of total offense – 58 in the fourth quarter – wheras Wisconsin saw two running backs exceed 125 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
“When you have a day offensively like we did, we're going to look at that film and see a lot of reasons,” Flood said. “It starts up front, there's no doubt, it always starts up front. But I think there's going to be more than enough responsibility to go around.”
Flood addressed the third straight Rutgers (5-4, 1-4) loss in his post-game press conference.
