Wisconsin 35, Northwestern 6—Final

It was a no-contest in Madison on Saturday afternoon as the Wisconsin Badgers streamrolled the No. 19 Northwestern Wildcats 35-6.

Coming off a heartbreaking loss against Ohio State, the Wildcats (4-2, 0-2) clearly showed signs of a hangover and failed to muster a single score in the second half. They didn't stand a chance in the trenches, and that was ultimately the difference in the game.

For the fourth time this season, Wisconsin (4-2, 2-1) saw two players go over 100 rushing yards. Quarterback Joel Stave missed some throws, but only one of his two interceptions was his fault, and he wound up throwing for 245 yards and three touchdowns.

The lone bright spot for Northwestern? Its defense was able to force three turnovers, which was the only reason the Wildcats were able to get on the board.

Injuries affected both sides, as the Badgers lost receiver Jared Abbrederis to a head injury in the first half and Northwestern lost quarterback Kain Colter and running back Venric Mark to lower-body injuries early on, as well.

With the loss, the Wildcats are essentially eliminated from Big Ten title contention, while the Badgers still face an uphill battle if they want to return to Indianapolis for a third straight season.
