If you thought the Wisconsin Badgers win over previous #1 Ohio State was exciting last week? This week’s 31-30 win over #13 was even more thrilling.
The Badgers stunned the Hawkeyes with a fake punt midway through the 4th quarter, and Montee Ball ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 1:06 left to play to give the 10th ranked Badgers the win in Iowa City.
Scott Tolzien threw for 205 yards and a touchdown and John Clay added a pair of TD runs as the Badgers improved to 7-1 overall, 3-1 in the Big Ten.
The fake punt came courtesy of Brad Nortman, who ran 17 yards up the middle to pick up a first down.
The win gave the Badgers the Heartland Trophy and it’ll stay in Madison until the next time the two teams hook up, not until at least 2013.
