Badgers Win in Double Overtime


After having more than 40 players suffer from flu-like symptoms during the week, overtime was probably the last thing Wisconsin was hoping for against Fresno State.
The Badgers persevered, however, and dominated the second overtime period en route to a 34-31 victory over the Bulldogs, with kicker Philip Welch putting a 22-yarder through for the win in double overtime.
“I know our guys are really, really fired up. That was a very, very good football team,” head coach Bret Bielema said. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for (Fresno State head coach) Pat Hill and what he’s been able to do. This is a two-year battle with him now, and I just have the utmost respect for their players and the way they competed.” Next the Badgers take on Wofford as one more "tune up game" before the Big Ten Season Opener versus Michigan State. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
