The Wisconsin Badgers had a convincing win over the Maryland Terrapins, 38-13 on Saturday. The Badgers scored in every quarter and the defense looked strong, holding Maryland to under 300 yards in the game. The offense had 41 carries for over 200 yards, and Hornibrook made some big throws on 3rd downs in the game. Taylor racked up 126 yards rushing and broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season, a major record shared by only five other backs in college ball.
The Badgers-Terrapins game was the 10th straight Big Ten win, marking the longest streak in school history, and the Badgers are 7-0, a feat not seen since 2004. Also notable was the fourth interception return touchdown of the season, right out the gate in the first quarter, an achievement not had since at least 1950. Under heavy pressure, Terrapin’s Bortenschlager’s pass over the middle was intercepted by linebacker T.J. Edwards and returned 54 yards for a touchdown.
