Working in the redzone, quarterback Braedyn Locke found Pauling, who beat double coverage on a crosser for the score, which came on Wisconsin’s first drive of the half.

The Badgers were driving down the field, but needed a score, which they got on a 3rd & 8, due to a strike from Locke to Pauling on a play where the quarterback stepped up and found his favorite target for the score.
It had been a struggle for the Badgers early on to score, but Wisconsin opened the second half with a seven-play, 75-yard scoring drive, which enabled them to tie the score at 10 a piece.
Unfortunately, the lead wasn’t secured for long, as Ohio State also scored on their first possession of the second half, with Marvin Harrison catching a 19-yard pass from quarterback Kyle McCord on a 1-on-1, giving the Buckeyes a 17-10 lead, which carried over to the fourth quarter.
Can the Badgers bounce back and remain competitive against the Buckeyes?
