Just when you thought the Wisconsin Badgers were dead in the water, they came charging back in the fourth quarter only to be crushed by a desperation hail-mary as time expired.

Rapid Reaction: Wisconsin 82 Michigan St. 56


The #18 Wisconsin Badgers were a force to be reckoned with in a 82-56 drubbing of the Michigan State Spartans on Super Bowl Sunday. With the win, the Badgers (17-5, 7-3) extended their home-winning streak to 16 while the Spartans (13-10, 5-6) have firmly placed their selves in the discussion for a possible NIT invite.
