Wisconsin's Cotton Bowl win denies Western Michigan an unbeaten season

Wisconsin's Cotton Bowl win denies Western Michigan an unbeaten season

The Wisconsin Badgers squared up against the undefeated Western Michigan Broncos in the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Monday, January 2nd. She said the focus has been "100 percent" on the Cotton Bowl.

After a year that began with low expectations from outsiders, an upset win in Titletown, and close games seemingly every week, the Wisconsin Badgers capped the season off with a bowl win. I think this game will stay tight, but the Wisconsin pressure will be too much late, and the Broncos will be unable (unfortunately) to score the winning touchdown at the end of the game.

Western Michigan opened the second half with a field goal and forced back-to-back Wisconsin punts to start the second half. Houston went 5 of 6 for 78 yards in the first half, leading the Badgers to scoring drives of 11, 7 and 9 plays, and finished 11 of 12 for 159 yards.

The Broncos made their living this season on turnover margin, and in the end, it was one of their turnovers that ruined the day.

Western Michigan wasn't done and got a insane touchdown in the fourth quarter, Corey Davis - one of the top receivers in the nation - hauled in a pass Terrell lofted off his back foot, coming down with it in the end zone for a touchdown to make it 24-16. Three plays later, Hornibrook found Fumagalli in the back of the endzone for an 8-yard touchdown pass to push Wisconsin's lead to 24-10. Edwards' interception gave the Badgers their best starting field position of the game.

Senior receiver Corey Davis (73 yards on six catches) helped Western Michigan make it a one possession game with 3:27 remaining, but the Badgers didn't let the Broncos recover the onside kick and ran out the clock. Running back Dare Ogunbowale had a 20-yard run that set himself up for a 1-yard touchdown run to give the Badgers a 14-0 lead with 3:23 to play in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, the Western Michigan defense ranks 26th in the country, holding opponents to 353 YPG.

Wisconsin: RB Corey Clement, 1,304 yards, 14 TDs rushing.

Fumagalli finished with six catches for 83 yards a touchdown. In just his short tenure with Western, he's taken them from perennial doormats, to front and center on one of college football's biggest stages.

On the 16th play of the drive, Terrell took a naked bootleg around the right side, duping a Wisconsin defender on his way to a 2-yard TD run.

That was the 51st touchdown connection between Terrell and Davis, tying an NCAA record for a tandem.

Wisconsin worked its way into WMU territory on the ensuing drive, but was held to a field goal, making it 17-7 at halftime.

With the win, the Badgers moved to 11-3 on the year, marking the second 10-win season under head coach Paul Chryst in as many years.
