Wisconsin’s defense was stellar as usual in the first half, but the Badgers managed a 6-0 lead at the break.
The Badgers came out of the locker room and increased that lead to 13-0, after Paul Chryst pulled quarterback Bart Houston for redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook.
It was at that point that the Panthers scored a pair of touchdowns and jumped out in front 17-13 early in the fourth quarter.
Georgia State used a quick passing game and didn’t allow the Badger pass rushers to make an impact.
The Badgers were able to regain the lead when Hornibrook tossed a short touchdown pass. They would add a Rafael Gaglianone field goal and then get a big defensive stop to hang on for the win. [Read more…]
