Badgers suffer first loss of the season

The Wisconsin Badgers suffer first loss of the season and fall out of first place in the Big Ten West Conference standings. 


The Badgers could not find a way to beat the Northwestern Wildcats Saturday night but instead beat themselves with 5 turnovers to Northwestern's 1. The game started with a Wildcat strike from quarterback  Peyton Ramsey, but the Badgers fired right back with a Graham Mertz passing touchdown to receiver Chimere Dike. The Badgers remained scoreless the rest of the first half while Northwestern scored another passing touchdown to go ahead 14-7 heading into the locker room. The second half was a defensive battle between both teams resulting in a scoreless effort by the Badgers while Northwestern tacked on a fourth quarter field goal to go up 17-7 which ended up being the final score. The Badgers committed eight penalties that went for 89 yards, including 4 pass interferences, 3 of them coming in the first half. Wisconsin’s loss puts them at 2-1 overall, good enough for second place in the Big Ten conference. The Badgers look to bounce back next weekend when they face off for the border axe battle against Minnesota.
