Wanna get away? Wake Forest QB throws INT on 4 consecutive possessions vs. Wisconsin
Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman is having a rough second half in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.
Wisconsin has now picked off Hartman on four consecutive possessions, turning a once-tied game into a 42-21 blowout in favor of the Badgers.
The score was 21-21 when Hartman threw his first pick of the game with 2:04 left in the third quarter. But Wisconsin has built up a 21-point lead less than seven minutes of game time later.
The Badgers turned those four interceptions into three touchdowns and a field goal attempt, which missed wide. Even with leaving those points on the board, Wisconsin was still able to take advantage of those mistakes.
On Wake Forest’s next possession, Hartman was replaced by Michael Kern. Kern drove the ball into the red zone, but ultimately turned it over on downs.
This was Hartman’s final pass of the day, which Wisconsin converted to a touchdown a couple plays later.

Hartman had a great year, particularly when it came to protecting the ball. He threw just one interception in 236 attempts this season prior to facing Wisconsin. He was also great in the first half of this bowl game, throwing three touchdown passes and building out a 14-0 lead.
Credit to the Badgers’ coaching staff for scheming up a great game plan in the second half.
