Wisconsin suffered the first loss of the Gary Andersen era on Saturday night, falling victim to Arizona State, 32-30, in a game that won't soon be forgotten.
The Badgers were outplayed for most of the game but still led for long stretches and had a chance to win it at the end. But one of the most bizarre sequences you'll ever see—both by quarterback Joel Stave and the referees—allowed the clock to expire before the Badgers could kick the game-winning field goal.
Even in defeat, the Badgers learned a lot about themselves on Saturday night, playing on the road against a team that might challenge for the Pac-12 South title.
The lessons it learned in a loss could help, eventually, lead to wins.
