Badgers come out of a fog both literally and figuratively against the Indiana Hoosiers as they ran their record to a perfect 9-0 in the BIG.

On a day with the high near 50 and the skies cluttered with fog, the Badgers came out on the field at Memorial Stadium in a stupor of their own making and found themselves down early 10-0 to the Hoosiers.

Indiana struck the end zone first with a Richard Lagow to Devonte Williams for 23 yards and a Griffin Oakes extra point and a Oakes 26 yard field goal.

It wasn’t until a Morgan Ellison fumble that Wisconsin woke from their doldrums and put together a seven play 73 yard drive culminating in a Alec Ingold reception from Alex Hornibrook and a Rafael Gaglianone extra point narrowed the gap to three.

Wisconsin would go up 14-10 with 41 second left in the first half when Quintez Cephus from Hornibrook from eight yards out.

The second half opened up with a field goal from Gaglianone from 21 yards to push the margin to seven for the Badgers.

Wisconsin would score again after a thrilling thirty two yard run from true freshman Jonathan Taylor, who came into the game as the BiG’s leading rusher.

Taylor would go on to rush for 187 yards on 29 carries.

With the Badgers up 24-10 the Hoosiers closed the gap to seven when Simmie Cobbs, Jr. hauled in a 17 yard pass from Richard Lagow.

That was the last score of the game for the Hoosiers as Wisconsin would score three more touchdowns, two by Alec Ingold and a one yard run by Bradrick Shaw to open up and walk away from the Hoosiers 45-17.

The leading rusher for the Hoosiers would be Alex Rodriquez with only 29 yards, Lagow passed for 226 yards on a 20/34 passing day with two interceptions. The offensive line allowed four sacks on Lagow. Luke Timian led the Hoosiers with 64 yards while Cobbs had 62 and De’Angelo Philyor added 55.

The Badgers were led by the young star Taylor with 187 yards rushing, Alex Hornibrook passed for 158 yards  on 13/20 and one interception.  The Hoosiers would get to Hornibrook three times and A J Taylor would haul in three passes for 63 yards.

Indiana falls to 3-6 and now must beat Illinois, a re-vitalized Rutgers team and on the road at Ross Aide against a much improved Purdue Boilermaker team.
