Badgers fall to Ohio State 20-17

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Terrelle Pryor ran for an 11-yard touchdown with 1:08 left and Chris "Beanie" Wells had 168 yards rushing and a score as Ohio State's new double-threat backfield led the 14th-ranked Buckeyes to a 20-17 victory over No. 18 Wisconsin on Saturday.

The last time the Buckeyes (4-1, 2-0 Big Ten) played a marquee game under the lights, they got pounded by Southern California last month. Wells didn't play in that game and Pryor, the talented freshman, wasn't the starter.

With Wells healthy and Pryor getting comfortable, Ohio State looks like a much different team.

The 19-year-old quarterback kept his poise, leading Ohio State on two fourth-quarter scoring drives, snapping Wisconsin's 16-game home winning streak that evened coach Jim Tressel's record to 3-3 against the Badgers (3-2, 0-2).
