The Michigan State Spartans tried to close the door on Wisconsin’s Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor on Saturday. While they held him to a season-low 80 yards on 26 carries, the Badgers found other ways to pull out a 38-0 victory at Camp Randall Stadium. Taylor did score two rushing touchdowns, and continues to lead the nation in scoring. He has 14 rushing touchdowns and eight receiving touchdowns on the season.
It’s also the 13th time in his career, that Taylor has rushed for multiple touchdowns in a game.
The Badgers did rush for 222 yards for the game. Wide receiver Kendric Pryor scored on a 66-yard run. Kakia Watson added 34 yards and Aron Cruickshank added 28.
Badger quarterback Jack Coan completed 18 of 21 for 180 yards and a touchdown and the Badgers defense did the rest, pulling out their 6th straight win to start the season. Coan completed passes to eight difference receivers, with tight end Jake Ferguson and wide out Danny Davis leading the way with four catches each. [Read more…]
