Badgers win third straight, defeat Wolverines 45-24


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Scott Tolzien tied a career high with four touchdown passes and scored on a sneak, and No. 21 Wisconsin made Michigan's miserable Big Ten season even worse with a 45-24 victory Saturday.

Nick Toon caught two of Tolzien's touchdown throws for the Badgers (8-2, 5-2), who went to the air after putting together monster rushing performances in their previous two games.

It was the third consecutive win for the Badgers -- and sweet payback on Senior Day for a team that struggled after blowing a lead to Michigan last year.

Tate Forcier was a solid 20 of 26 for 188 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, but it wasn't enough to spare the Wolverines from their sixth straight conference loss. After a 4-0 start to the season, the Wolverines (5-6, 1-6) now are reeling going into next Saturday's matchup with rival Ohio State.
