Big-play Badgers overcome own sloppiness in 38-17 win over Nebraska

J.T. Barrett and the Ohio State Buckeyes travel to Nebraska on Saturday night
The Badgers are 1-0 in the Big Ten and 3-1 with the over.
Taylor, a true freshman who has played only five games, said Saturday's atmosphere was the most intense and exciting anywhere he has played outside of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium. He has gained 100-plus yards over the past three games. "The important downs. I think we are doing a good job of moving him around, keeping in motion".
"I think me personally, and the whole team as a group, we knew we were going to surprise people", Hunter said, "and that's what we were going for".
What Taylor did was all too familiar for the Cornhuskers.
That's how the big boys play this game.
Taylor's 249 yards were the third-most rushing yards ever by a Nebraska opponent.
Taylor continued to solidify himself as the face of the program after plowing forward for his second touchdown of the night, extending the Wisconsin lead to 14.
University of Wisconsin sophomore A.J. Taylor fumbled in each of the past two games while returning a kickoff, but Badgers coach Paul Chryst said Monday his confidence in Taylor hasn't wavered.
The Badgers stay undefeated after their 28-17 win over Nebraska Saturday night.
Hornibrook's next pass also went to Cephus, a 5-yard touchdown with 4:56 left in the third to cap an 11-play, 93-yard drive.
Taylor also won both awards after his 223-yard, three-touchdown performance against Florida Atlantic on September 9. Dooley would deliver a similar impact later, putting tremendous pressure on Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee on third down, forcing a sloppy and easily broken up pass attempt, ultimately resulting in a Nebraska punt. Nebraska trails 10-7.
Wisconsin is the better team, but I see the offense having some issues going on the road for a night game with Nebraska.
Nebraska took over at its own 20-yard line with 1:20 left in the half, and 12 seconds later found itself in the end zone after an 80-yard catch-and-run.
Then came another Tanner Lee train wreck - not his fault - the ball bounced off Devine Ozigbo's hands, Wisconsin returned an interception return 78 yards for a touchdown.
Before the break, the Huskers navigated the field for a Drew Brown field goal to reach the half time score. The Badgers as a team, finished with 353 rushing yards. That's where we want to go. "I talked with the linemen". "We made a few plays, but they gave us no chance to have continuity". "It was there and it was great execution".
At least part of NU's undefeated start to Big Ten play can be credited to the emotional lift from hearing offseason whispers that after the Huskers' loss of three All-Americans, maybe it was time for one of their conference rivals to shine.
The victory allowed UW (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) to move up two spots in the Amway coaches poll to No. 6 on Sunday. "He certainly understands the importance of it, not just putting the ball on the ground, but both times, those were critical situations". It's the third consecutive home game that Lee has thrown a pick six - two against Northern Illinois, one against Rutgers and the one by the Badgers.
Nebraska safety Joshua Kalu, who missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, had a career-high 10 tackles and a pair of pass breakups.
Nebraska coach Mike Riley is confident the Huskers will be able to put a disappointing loss behind them as they prepare to host ninth ranked Ohio State.
