Quick hits from Wisconsin's win over Nebraska

The most impressive part was Taylor's timing. And I'm confident that the guys that are banged up, they'll get back. We pride ourselves on being a smart offense running back group. "Just having that adversity strike us this early and being able to respond to it, I think it's huge".

What Taylor did was all too familiar for the Cornhuskers.

On Saturday night, Nebraska celebrated the 20-year anniversary of its last national championship team that went 13-0 and routed Peyton Manning's Tennessee to clinch the title.

Freshman Jonathan Taylor had 249 of those yards on the ground. He finished 16-of-32 passing for 262 yards, and his lone interception probably should have gone for a touchdown.

"I thought J.T. was special tonight", Badgers coach Paul Chryst said. "I think we had moved the ball decently at halftime and had pretty good totals but not much to show for it".

Aaron Williams" 10-yard return for a "pick six' helped even the score at 17-17 near the beginning of the second half.

But the Badgers went back to the Taylor well and capped a 93-yard TD drive with Hornibrook's back shoulder throw to Cephus to retake the lead.

Coming into the Wisconsin game, the Huskers had allowed just two offensive touchdowns over the previous 14 quarters and had held the previous three foes to less than 250 yards.

Fires roar across Napa, Sonoma, emergency declared

The Walking Dead WILL Crossover With Fear The Walking Dead
And inspiration struck for him Saturday night at Madison Square Garden during the New York Comic Con Walking Dead panel. "One character is going to go from one show that I will not name and appear on another show that I will not name".

On the second play of Nebraska's ensuing drive, Morgan fumbled the ball on what would have been a 15-yard gain, but Wisconsin junior linebacker Ryan Connelly dove on the football at the Nebraska 40-yard line. Nebraska's offense kept its poise, finishing off a drive with a field goal to make it 17-10 at half, UW. "We made a few plays, but they gave us no chance to have continuity". It was also the last pass the Badgers would throw as they turned to their punishing running game to finish off a 38-17 win. But on a second and 8 from the Wisconsin 23, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf called for a pass in the right flat to running back Devine Ozigbo.

The Huskers were hurt by a pick-six by Wisconsin's Chris Orr on the opening drive when they were in scoring position.

Before the break, the Huskers navigated the field for a Drew Brown field goal to reach the half time score. Stanley Morgan Jr. has caught 26 passes for 395 yards and four scores while Tre Bryant is the leading rusher with 299 yards and two scores, but he continues to be out with a knee injury.

Particularly after the Cornhuskers appeared to swing momentum their way early in the second half with a defensive touchdown that unleashed a deafening roar from the sellout crowd of almost 90,000.

"Just do what we have to do, play the way we know we can and we knew that we would have a drive. It was there and it was great execution".

Either the Huskers would pull off an upset and emerge as legit contenders in the Big Ten West, or they'd lose and be left trying to salvage whatever was left of their 2017 season. They could go into their final stretch - Iowa, Michigan, at Minnesota - with a 9-0 overall record and a 6-0 Big Ten mark.

Taylor carried 25 times for the Badgers and collected his second 200-yard rushing performance in five games this season.
