The Wisconsin Badgers found themselves in a tricky situation Saturday as Northwestern stormed back from a 31-10 deficit to come within a touchdown at 31-24. But Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson tried to do too much on the final drive and ended up ending the game on a tough play.

The Badgers pinned Northwestern on their own 2-yard line with a great punt, and Northwestern found some room to work with a short gain on first down. On second down, though, Thorson tried to evade a blitz and ended up getting sacked by D'Cota Dixon in the end zone for the game-sealing safety.
