Northwestern football defeated the Wisconsin Badgers by a score of 20-14. Reporter Brandon Wilson gives you the recap of what happened.
Photographer Zack Becker was there to document the game through the lens of his camera.
Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon (#25) ran all over Northwestern’s defense, burning the ‘Cats for 259 yards and a touchdown. Gordon accounted for more than half of Wisconsin’s total yards.
Trevor Siemian (#13) and Justin Jackson (#28) paced the Wildcat offense. Siemian passed for 182 yards and a score and Jackson’s 162-yard day nearly doubled his previous career high.
Wisconsin’s passing game, on the other hand, left much to be desired. Badger QBs combined for four interceptions, two of which came in the red zone.
Godwin Igwebuike hauls in an interception in the end zone. Igwebuike had three of the ‘Cats’ four picks, the last of which clinched the upset victory.
