End-game situations for Wisconsin football—we'll throw the Green Bay Packers in there as well—have been a cruel, cruel mistress.
The Badgers lost in truly bizarre fashion late Saturday night against Arizona State. Unfortunately, the final 18 seconds will overshadow what was one of the best college football games we've seen in this early season.
There's no going back now—Wisconsin is 2-1* and we will never know if Kyle French would have knocked home that 32-yard field-goal attempt. Instead of having a chance to come home with a gratifying away victory against a stingy Sun Devils squad, the Badgers have dropped out of the USA Today football coaches' poll.
To revisit those final 18 seconds would be to dwell on the past, although that's exactly what we'll do when looking back on the Badgers' biggest surprises through three weeks of play. What has stood out through the first three weeks of the season at Wisconsin?
