The University of Wisconsin football team lost big in a Big Ten match with Northwestern University in large part to three fumbles. Tailback Jonathan Taylor dropped two while quarterback Jack Coan, who made seasonal and college debut in place of the injured Alex Hornibrook, fumble one. The Wildcats capitalized on those mistakes to score 17 points.
The Badgers now stand at 3-2 in the Big Ten and 5-3 overall for the season.
