Jonathan Taylor will be Wisconsin's most potent weapon against the Michigan defense.

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.

Poor performance from O-line, quarterback overshadow team effort in loss to Penn State

As any good coach will tell you, football is a team game. That means it’s a weakest link game, where poor performance from one play or positional group can cancel out all the good done by the rest. That’s exactly what happened Saturday in State College, as an uncharacteristically bad game by the offensive line and sophomore quarterback Jack Coan’s struggles produced a passing offense that gave Wisconsin no shot in what turned out to be a winnable game against Penn State.
