Last week against FAU, Alex Hornibrook watched Jonathan Taylor enter the Wisconsin record books with 223 yards as a true freshman running back.Evidently, the redshirt sophomore quarterback wanted his own name etched in stone by the No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers (3-0 Overall) as Saturday afternoon, BYU (1-3) ended up on the wrong side of an historic performance in a 40-6 contest.Hornibrook could seemingly do no wrong as he set a Wisconsin school record for completion percentage in a game at 94.7 percent in what was clearly the best game of his young career.He was actually accurate on 100 percent of his 19 pass attempts, completing 18 of them for 256 yards and four touchdowns, as his lone incompletion came when a pass was dropped by true freshman wide receiver Danny Davis in the first quarter to keep him short of statistical perfection.And while it was a nearly flawless performance from the young quarterback, he also had quite a bit of help to get him through it.

Wisconsin (0-0 Big Ten, 2-0 overall) defeated Florida Atlantic (0-0, 0-2) in a comfortable 17-point victory on Saturday, but a couple of crucial mistakes allowed the Owls to stay in the game for longer than expected.Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin’s team trailed just 21-14 with 4:29 remaining in the first half, but the Badgers cleaned up their play after that point, closing the game on a 10-0 run.The first of Wisconsin’s major mistakes was a blown coverage in the first quarter which left Florida Atlantic junior wide receiver DeAndre McNeal wide open for a 63-yard score.According to senior cornerback Derrick Tindal, there was miscommunication between him and the other defensive backs—Tindal expected safety help over the top, and, accordingly, moved infield instead of following the Owls’ receiver, leaving him wide open on the sideline with nothing but the end zone in front of him.“I should’ve done a better job of relaying it to the corner [Nelson], and I didn’t, and it turned into a big play,” Tindal said.
