The Wisconsin Badgers jumped out to an early 7-0 lead when Jonathan Taylor cruised 71 yards for a touchdown. That for the most part was the only big highlight for the day as the Penn State rebounded for a 22-10 win in State College, PA.
The Badgers (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten) has lost four games in a season for the first time in Paul Chryst’s four seasons and they may not be done yet.
The Badgers West Division title hopes are gone with the loss. Northwestern’s 14-10 win at Iowa gave the title to the Wildcats, who will battle either Michigan or Ohio State for the Big Ten title.
