I'm Glad I Didn't Watch This Game
As a somewhat proud Wisconsin Badger Alumni (Alumnus?), I'm glad I didn't watch the Wisconsin-LSU game last night.
From ESPN: Down 10 to Wisconsin already, LSU started the second half with a delay of game penalty on the opening kickoff. On the Badgers' first play from scrimmage, Melvin Gordon sprinted 63 yards up the middle to set up another touchdown.
Not a good start. But the Tigers still found the right way to finish.
Kenny Hilliard scored on a 28-yard touchdown run to cap a fourth-quarter rally for No. 13 LSU in a 28-24 win over No. 14 Wisconsin at NRG Stadium on Saturday night.
The Tigers trailed 24-21 when Jalen Mills intercepted Tanner McEvoy's pass at the LSU 47 with 11:04 left. Hilliard ran for 53 yards on the ensuing drive, sprinting through a hole on the right side to finish off the improbable comeback.
The Tigers extended the nation's longest regular-season nonconference winning streak to 46 games by overcoming a 24-7 deficit in the fourth quarter. http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=400548000
If I were watching the game, we would be shopping for a new TV tomorrow.
If this is the way the Badgers are going to play this season, it's going to be a very long season.
