A quick look at the 15th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers' 37-21 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a Big Ten West battle Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Jonathan Taylor: With his third career 200-yard game on the ground against the Cornhuskers, Taylor powered the UW offense to a needed win. If he doesn’t return for his senior season, Taylor will finish his career with 674 career yards and seven touchdowns against Nebraska.
Collin Larsh: Rightfully criticized for missed field goals earlier this season, Larsh tied a career-high with three makes on three tries. All were from close range, but paying off drives in the red zone with points is crucial, and Larsh made it happen.
