Wisconsin did not spring any traps. We did not see any artfully scripted series coming out of the Badgers’ bye week. They simply lined up and said, “Here we come, try and stop us.” Michigan could not find any answers. Wisconsin’s first drive went 12 plays, and took 6:25 off the clock. The drive included the riverboat gambler awakening of Paul Chryst, who finally realized he should use the best running attack in the country on all four downs. On 4th & 1, from his own 34 yard line, Chryst rolled the dice on the first drive of the game! Jonathon Taylor answered the bell with a 3-yard run. Wisconsin converted two subsequent 3rd down plays, including the 1-yard touchdown plunge by Taylor. The Badgers made an emphatic statement, right from the opening bell.
