you would have never known by watching the badgers game, a big 35-point favorite going into the game. the badgers made a change in the second half and it really changed the game around. the badgers count get things going around. they put in alex hornibrook. he moved wisconsin down the the home team up 13-3. the panthers get their first touchdown of the game with the 13-yard touchdown. badgers up 13-10. panthers playing tough. georgia state up 17-13. but the badgers would answer. hornibrook rolls out and finds kyle penniston for a touchdown. the badgers back on top, 20-17. wisconsin would hold on and win
6:23 pm
here is the head coach. >> you grow from what happens and you build on the things you do well and you find ways to get a little bit better, and i don't know how -- i wouldn't know how to answer that, but appreciate what this group did, and it's -- you know what, we're 3-0 going in the big ten play, and that part the packers and vikings step into prime time tomorrow night in minnesota. here is wayne larrivee talking about the vikings defense. >> the minnesota vikings suffered the cruelest of breaks when teddy bridgewater went down with a devastating knee injury. it's not like the packers losing aaron rodgers, because with or without bridgewater this
6:24 pm
on defense. the best offense was its defense that scored twice in an opening day win at tennessee last week. there is all pro talent on all three levels. upfront defensive end everson griffin. in passing situations, griffen is complimented on the other side by hunter whose quickness were evident on this 24-yard fumble return touchdown. on t paid safety in the game today is harrison smith. allowing coach mike zimmer to mix up looks without swapping personnel. because smith excels at the line of scrimmage and in man and zone coverages. minnesota's defense might now be the club's best offense. last week at tennessee the unit scored on an interception and fumble return to fuel the vikings' 25-16 comeback victory. so trust me, reports of the vikings demise in the wake of
6:25 pm
