The Spartans have entered Camp Randall. Kickoff coming in seconds.
Back to back INTs give Wisc the ball at the MSU 42
MSU LB shits the bed on his zone coverage and Wisconsin scores to take a 7-0 lead in the 1st
MSU beats the Wisconsin man coverage and evens the score at 7
MSU holds Wisc to a 3&out, then marches and throws pick #2. Wisconsin driving at the start of the 2nd. 4th and inches from the 34. What's Goose going to do?
Lots of drops in this one. MSU takes over at midfield after forcing a 3&out from the Wisconsin 2.
Goalline stand for Wisc leads to an MSU FG as the half expires. MSU up 10-7
Andrew Maxwell does his best Christian Okoye impression and runs over a LB on a QB scramble and gets in for the score. MSU up 17-7 early third. Wisc is driving at the MSU 35
The rollout motion looks strange, but Wisc just pulled off a beautiful TD pass on a corner route to pull within 3
MSU gets a couple big plays from their TE to setup a short score. MSU up 24-14 with 0:54 in the third
Another close battle!
Wisc converts a key 3rd and short to continue their drive. 1st & 10 from the Wisc 36, 7:30 to play
After taking a sack on 1st down, Wisc gets most of it back on 2nd down to setup another 3rd and short. This one comes up short. Setups 4th and 2. Big conversion for Wisc to stay in the game. 1st and 10 from the MSU 28, 5:30 to play
Wisc scores with 4:01 left to pull within 3 at 24-21
MSU converts 1st down to get a fresh set of downs. Setups 3rd and inches from the 49 with 1:53, Wisc 2 timeouts left
Wisc runs a dime 3-2 against an I formation on 3rd and inches? MSU converts. 1st and 10, 1:34 and counting
Punch it in and cover, damnit! ;-)
Wisc gets the stop on 3rd and 8, MSU forced to punt with about 20 seconds left
MSU punts to the Wisc 4 and Wisconsin can't make magic happen. MSU wins 24-21. Great game Goose.
TSO needs a dislike button.
Stupid computer pick, I spent too much time trying to figure out what to run. That really sucked.
Hell of a game, Mark. Did your vids post at the end of the game? Mine didn't.
I got through 3 of them, but it looks like it's stuck on the 4th. This happens to be the one where your OLB drilled my QB, but didn't wrap up, which let him waltz in for the score. It was kind of an ugly play, but turned out to be a significant one. I think the 5th was your corner route TD - very nice on that, by the way.
Yeah - the game was much, much better than our first. Your running game seemed strong at times, but you didn't finish with great rushing numbers. I think that had something to do with the 3 sacks you took. You had a strong game passing, which wasn't there at all the last time we played. I think we had some lag in our first game where that didn't seem to be as much of an issue this time.
I was happy with the way my guys played with the exception of the two picks. I about had a heart attack when you deflected the pass with about 4 minutes left and your two guys came storming in to intercept the would-be game winning pick-six. Let's just say I was relieved when the ball hit the turf.
Lots of big stops, a handful of big drops and a lot of good football. Good game.
Man, another close game for you, Brog'. How's your heart holding up?
Better this time. It's a lot worse on the other end of things.
