The final score is Wisconsin 31, Illinois 14.

The game featured two inept offenses, until the fourth quarter at which time the Badgers deflated the Illini and took home the victory.

Both teams still have a number of questions, but the Badgers made some strides forward and can head into next week's game at Purdue—likely the key game for the Big Ten Leaders Division title—with something to build upon.
