Wisconsin 27, BYU 17—Final
In a game that was dominated in the trenches by Wisconsin, the Badgers took care of business at Camp Randall Stadium and protected home field, defeating BYU 27-17.
Wisconsin (7-2, 4-1) was paced by running back James White, who scored all three of the Badgers' touchdowns on the afternoon. It was the second consecutive week that the senior tailback breached the century mark on the ground as he totaled 149 rushing yards.
The return of Chris Borland inspired the Wisconsin defense, and the Badgers front seven kept dual-threat quarterback Taysom Hill in check until the final minutes of the game. The sophomore quarterback failed to complete 50 percent of his passes and only managed 53 rushing yards, many of which came in garbage time.
With the loss, the Cougars (6-3) are eliminated from BCS contention while the Badgers still have an outside chance at climbing into the Top 14 of the BCS standings should they win out and get some help. A B1G title shot remains a longshot, however, but Wisconsin has now won four straight games and put a hault to BYU's five-game winning streak.
