The Badgers couldn’t have ended 2018 on a better note than this. Just like 2017, their last game for the season was scheduled to be with Hurricanes. And once again they emerged victoriously.
The Defense Did It All
The performance put by Wisconsin’s defense was stupendous. They stopped the Miami Hurricanes at a mere score of 3. This boosted up the confidence of the offense which scored 35 points covering 406 yards- 333 on the ground.
Hurricanes struggled with their offense
Hurricanes have had trouble with their offense in the past and the same thing continued. There were several attempts by Malik Rosier but Wisconsin’s linebackers were careful enough not to give anything away. After continuous turnovers, Jaquan Johnson somehow managed to get Hurricanes their first takeaway of the match.
But again, Miami was struggling with their offense. In against of Wisconsin’s 182 yards, Miami had covered a mere 96 yards till 10:54. Rosier then decided to pump up the momentum covering his career best of 62-yard, which helped the Hurricanes to get a respectable 3-14 till the end of the first quarter.
Wisconsin’s Were All Pumped Up in the Second Half!
Chris Orr and Andrew Van Ginkel made sure that Miami struggles to get even one more point on board. And it happened. Orr tackled Rosier while Ginkel took one way from Hurricanes star Travis Homer. But the Badgers didn’t take advantage and went home at the lead of 14-3 in the first half.
In the second half, it was all Wisconsin Badgers. T.J. Edwards continued to create troubles for Rosier, while Alec Ingold made sure that the scoreboard keeps on ticking. He extended the lead for the Badgers to 21-3.
Hurricanes lost momentum
And that’s when Hurricanes lost it all. They started making replacements and swapped in N’Kosi Perry in place of their star Malik Rosier. But it didn’t make much of a difference. The Hurricanes were unable to put up a single point on the scoreboard, as Wisconsin registered a major victory of 35-3 over the Miami Hurricanes.
