The fifth-ranked Badgers hosted the power house of the Big Ten, the Michigan Wolverines. 

Nick Nelson started off the scoring for Wisconsin after returning a punt for a 50 yard touchdown. The punt return gave Wisconsin the lead 7-0. 

In the third, Michigan had a 10-7 lead, and after throwing an interception Alex Hornibrook was on fire. He threw a laser to AJ Taylor in the end zone to take the lead. 

Later in the third, Kendrick Pyror capitalized on a reverse hand off for the score. The Badgers beat Michigan 24-10. They will head to Minnesota next week for their final regular season game. 

Jonathon Taylor was the leading rushing with 132 yards off 19 carries. Hornibrook went 9/19 for 143 yards and 1 touchdown.
