Joel Stave threw for 188 yards and a touchdown, and Wisconsin rebounded from a lackluster first half to beat Maryland 31-24 Saturday for its fifth straight victory.
Natrell Jamerson returned a kickoff 98 yards during a first half in which the Badgers totaled 94 yards in offense and found themselves in a tie game.
After that, though, Wisconsin (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) dominated.
The Badgers took the lead for good in the third quarter when Alex Ingold scored on a 1-yard run to make it 24-17, and a 7-yard touchdown pass from Stave to Dare Ogunbowale with 14:01 remaining all but clinched it.
The Terrapins (2-7, 0-5) closed to 31-24 with 2:39 left, but they never got the ball back.
It was the sixth consecutive loss for Maryland, the last three under the guidance of interim coach Mike Locksley.
