Wisconsin comes back to beat Purdue in 47-44 triple-OT thriller

“He’s got something special,” head coach Paul Chryst said of Jonathan Taylor. After getting eliminated from Big Ten West contention following their 22-10 loss to Penn State a week ago, the Wisconsin Badgers (5-3 Big Ten, 7-4 overall) somehow clawed their way back from a late 14-point deficit to beat the Purdue Boilermakers (4-4, 5-6) 47-44 in triple overtime on the back of Jonathan Taylor’s 321 yards and three touchdowns.

Right tackle David Edwards (79) played the worst game of his career in pass protection, allowing seven pressures in 27 snaps.
