Wisconsin's 38-13 loss to Michigan was on a level that the program has rarely experienced in the past decade.
Since 2009, the Badgers have only lost by more than 10 points three times: once to Alabama and twice to Ohio State. Seriously, they've only lost three times in 10 years by double-digit margins. That's completely nuts.
Almost nobody does to Wisconsin what Michigan just did to Wisconsin. Damn. https://t.co/M6Z5zt2F08— Bill Connelly (@SBN_BillC) October 14, 2018
Quarterback Alex Hornibrook had an uncharacteristic day, as he was just 7-20 for 100 yards and one touchdown. He also logged two interceptions and missed on 12 consecutive balls after connecting on his first three.
Heisman contender Jonathon Taylor tried to help the offense, but he was shut down well below his 169.8 yards per game average. He gained 101 on 17 carries, but it wasn't nearly enough on the day.

Unlike the Wolverines, who look a like playoff-ready team, the Badgers aren't moving in the right direction. It's not all bad news, however, as the team still has a chance to represent the West division in the Big Ten championship-- and chance for a potential rematch with the Maize and Blue.
