While the Badgers got off to another slow start offensively, the defense shut down Rutgers’s rushing attack, and cornerback Ricardo Hallman thwarted the Scarlet Knights’s lone scoring opportunity in the first half with a 95-yard pick-six, providing Wisconsin with a 17-0 lead heading into halftime.
From there, the Badgers never let go, controlling the game by at least two scores, which led to the 24-13 victory.
Speaking to reporters following the game, head coach Luke Fickell was pleased with the effort, sharing respect for the Rutgers program, but pointing out Hallman’s interception as the turnaround in the game.
Listen to Fickell’s entire introductory statement after the Badgers’ 38-17 win over Buffalo earlier today.
