Badgers beat Army 20-14

The Wisconsin Badgers survived a low-scoring battle against Army on Saturday night with a 20-14 victory.  The Badgers came into the game a 13-point favorite but struggled to finish off the Black Knights until late in the game.  The Badgers got on the scoreboard with Braelon Allen scoring early in the second quarter on a 33-yard run.  Allen finished with 108 yards on 16 carries.  Quarterback Graham Mertz scored from five yards out with 3:22 left in the half, but the point-after-touchdown was blocked leaving the score at 13-0.  Army made it a game with a fourth-quarter touchdown run by quarterback Tyhier Taylor with 11:22 left in the game.   With only 2:55 left to go, Army fumbled and Wisconsin recovered at the Black Knight’s one-yard line.  One play later, Mertz scored for the second time on a quarterback sneak to secure the win.  Army did score late with :38 left, but the Badgers recovered an onside kick to preserve the win.  Wisconsin (3-3) will now return to Big Ten play next Saturday when they travel to Purdue to take on the Boilermakers who upset #2 Iowa 24-7 on Saturday.
