The Wisconsin Badgers are limping into November following two tough losses on the road.
In East Lansing, the Michigan State Spartans pulled off a once-in-a-lifetime victory with Kirk Cousins' Hail Mary pass to Keith Nichol in the closing seconds. However, the game wasn't lost in the final seconds; several aspects of Wisconsin's strategy were exploited by Mark Dantonio.
While not quite as thrilling (or sickening) as the Michigan State defeat, the loss in Columbus was no less disappointing. Seeing Devon Smith score with 20 seconds left off a 40-yard, on-the-move, off-the-back-foot Braxton Miller toss was the stuff of nightmares.
Once again, games are not lost on a single play, and the Buckeyes had the Badgers on their heels for the majority of the game.
Once hailed as the cream of the crop in the Big Ten, the Badgers' weaknesses have been exposed. For Wisconsin to salvage the season, it needs to shore up a few things.
