Despite falling behind 7-0 early, the No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers were able to take a 27-14 lead over the Nebraska Cornhuskers into the halftime break.
Completing 8-14 passes, junior quarterback Jack Coan was efficient, throwing for 128 yards and a touchdown.

One of two receptions for Taylor in the first half, the senior reached the 20-reception mark for the third consecutive season. Eclipsing 250 receiving yards on the season with his big half, this also represents his third straight year with multiple touchdown receptions.
Junior tailback Jonathan Taylor led the way for the Badgers in the first half with 106 yards and a touchdown on 14 rushes (7.5 AVG).
Receiving a two-year contract extension hours before kickoff, Scott Frost’s team actually matched Wisconsin’s rushing production at 151 yards. Redshirt junior Dedrick Mills, a former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, has racked up a team-high 112 yards and a score on 13 carries for the Cornhuskers.
