Trailing by three points with less than a minute to play, Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook found A.J. Taylor with a 17-yard scoring pass to give the Badgers a victory at Iowa Saturday. Wisconsin had marched 88 yards on 10 plays. Forty-one seconds later after an interception by T.J. Edwards, fullback Alec Ingold added an insurance score on a 33-yard run and Wisconsin prevailed 28-17. Edward spoke about his game sealing pic.

Although the Badger offense was held in check much of the game by a tough Iowa Hawkeye defense, Hornibrook had three scoring passes and Jonathan Taylor rushed for 113 yards on 25 carries. Hornibrook says that Saturday was all about responding.
The teams were tied at the half, 7-7. The Big Ten Conference win was the fifth straight for Wisconsin at Kinnick Stadium.
Saturday’s win has moved Wisconsin up by three spots in this week’s A-P football poll. The Badgers are ranked 15th. Ohio State at number-four, Penn State at number-nine and Michigan at number-14 are the Big Ten Conference teams ranked ahead of Wisconsin. The Badgers also advanced in the coaches poll to 13th after opening the conference season with a win.
