A slow start and a huge passing day for Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge were too much for Wisconsin to overcome Jan. 1 in the Outback Bowl, as UW lost 21-17.
After falling behind 21-7 in the second quarter, the Badgers (9-4, 5-3 Big Ten) battled back, but never were able to overtake the Volunteers (10-4, 6-2).
Momentum had seemingly swung Wisconsin’s way late in the fourth quarter. Trailing by four, Wisconsin had just blocked a short Tennessee field goal attempt and driven deep into enemy territory thanks largely to a 50-yard run by newly healthy running back P.J. Hill. But in the end the Badgers couldn't muster a comeback. I guess it is time to start watching the Badger Basketball team as they start the Big Ten season. A friend told me about a great site to buy Badger tickets. It is Badgertickets.com. It is website my friend has used several times and has had no problems. I hope I can make to Madison soon for a hoops or hockey game. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!
