It involved some drama, but the Wisconsin Badgers extended their bowl appearance streak to 21 in their 15-14 victory over Nebraska Saturday.
The Cornhuskers led 14-3 heading into the fourth quarter, making it look like the Badgers would have to wait to battle for Paul Bunyan's axe to see if their bowl appearance streak would be extended. The tide turned in the fourth quarter when the Badgers made it 14-9 on a Graham Mertz touchdown pass to Skyler Bell. Mertz would put the game away with 28 seconds remaining in the game on a quarterback sneak for the Badgers' second touchdown.
The Badgers will have one more opportunity to improve their bowl standing when they play Minnesota next week.
