Paul Chryst after loss to No. 3 Ohio State: 'This group will rally'
Dropping to 6-2 on the season, the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers were thoroughly dispatched by the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes, 38-7, on Saturday in Columbus.
Junior quarterback Jack Coan pulled the Badgers within three points early in the third quarter by finding senior A.J. Taylor for a 26-yard score. It was all Buckeyes from that point on, however, as Ohio State would outscore Wisconsin, 28-0, the rest of the way.
After the game, head coach Paul Chryst expressed confidence his team will get back on track, via Wisconsin football’s official Twitter account:

Completing 10-17 passes, Coan finished with 108 yards and the score to Taylor.
The Badgers’ other Taylor, Heisman Trophy candidate running back junior Jonathan Taylor, struggled to get much going, totaling 57 yards on 21 touches.
Junior wide receiver Quintez Cephus, one of the B1G’s best, caught three passes for 57 yards.
Idle on November 2, Chryst’s bunch will get another difficult test when they host the No. 20 Iowa Hawkeyes on November 9.
