Badgers fall to Spartans Saturday afternoon

The Wisconsin Badgers fell short of a comeback against the Michigan State Spartans, falling by a score of 34-28. 

 

The Badgers jumped out to an early lead, after a Braelon Allen rushing touchdown made it 7-0. Former Wisconsin Badger running back Jalen Berger was able to score from 12 yards out for the Spartans, who tied it back up at 7. Braelon Allen was not done, as he took in his second touchdown of the day, both of which coming from one yard out. 

 

The two teams would head into the half at that score, with the Badgers leading 14-7. 

 

Elijah Collins of Michigan State would find the endzone to make it a tie game at 14 with 54 seconds left in the third quarter. Both offenses would sputter a bit, until Quarterback Peyton Thorne found Wide Receiver Keon Coleman from 27 yards out to give Sparty the 21-14 lead. 

 

Graham Mertz found Keontez Lewis from three yards out on a fourth down and goal to tie to the game. Michigan State would drive down the field, due to a Pass Interference call on Wisconsin's Ricardo Hallman. The Spartans would attempt a field goal as time expired, but the snap was low and the field goal was unable to be attempted. Off to overtime the two teams went. 

 

Both Quarterbacks found the endzone from 25 yards out, with Thorne connecting with Keon Coleman once again, and Mertz finding Chimere Dike to end the first overtime period. The Badgers would start with the ball in 2OT, but Braelon Allen would put the ball on the ground, and the Spartans would end the game with a 27 yard touchdown pass. 

 

Michigan State improved to 3-4 Overall and 1-3 in the Big Ten Conference. Wisconsin falls to 3-4 Overall, and 1-3 in the Big Ten.
