New Page 1
  • Today's meeting between the University of North Carolina and Wisconsin was the first ever meeting between the two teams. The home and home series will be completed September 17, 2005 when the Badgers will travel to Chapel Hill. The win improved Wisconsin to 3-0 all-time versus ACC competition.

 

  • At 5:11 of the second quarter, Lee Evans became Wisconsin's all-time leader in career pass receptions. With his third reception of the day (for 13 yards) the wide receiver passed the record (131 catches) set by Al Toon from 1982-84. Evans totaled five receptions for 80 yards and one touchdown for the Badgers. He now has 134 receptions in his career. Evans also added to his school record consecutive games streak, having now caught a pass in 29 consecutive contests.

 

  • UNC strong safety Mahlon Carey recorded the first two pass interceptions of his career with two second quarter interceptions. It is the second straight week an opposing defensive back has recorded his first two career interceptions. UNLV's Jamaal Brimmer accomplished the feat last week.

 

  • Defensive back Jim Leonhard had his second interception of the season. The free safety from Tony, Wis. has 13 career interceptions, which ranks fifth all-time at Wisconsin.

 

  • In his first action of the season, place kicker Mike Allen was successful on all five extra point attempts and his only field goal attempt. Allen had been sidelined with a hip injury but was pressed into service after a foot injury to Scott Campbell. Allen also recorded a tackle and recovered a fumble.

 

  • Defensive back Ryan Aiello's fumble recovery was the second turnover of his career. His first recovery came against Akron when he intercepted his first pass.

 

  • In his 13th career start, tight end Tony Paciotti notched his first career interception, which went for 18 yards.
