Fourth Quarter

Scott rushes for three yards. IU lets the clock run out to end the third quarter.

FIELD GOAL: Wisconsin's kick is good from 28 yards out. The Badgers moved the ball down the field with some hard rushes, converting on third and short multiple times, but the Hoosiers' defense stopped a third down throw in the red zone. IU leads 14-6. :21, 3Q.

7:10: Tuttle fumbles on an attempted sneak and Wisconsin recovers. The Hoosiers turn the ball right back over and the Badgers will start their drive at their own 38.

Wisconsin's first two plays on the drive went for 19 and 20 yards.
