WATCH: Badgers defend, deflect and kick pass before intercepting it
Jeff George Jr. has seen better days.
In the first half against Wisconsin, the Illinois quarterback was intercepted four times, surpassing the mark the Illini had thrown all season heading into Saturday’s contest.
Three of those interceptions certainly fall on George’s poor decision-making. And while the third pick was well defended, the Badgers made on heck of a play to come away with another turnover.
Late in the second quarter, George was looking for a receiver along the sideline. When the pass was delivered, Sojourn Shelton was there to break up the play. It deflected off his hands and his leg before falling into the arms of Leo Musso.
The interception was Musso’s second of the game. At the end of the first half, he had more catches from George than any Illinois receiver.
