MADISON, Wis. Well, at least Wisconsin's football team knows how to make things interesting in defeat.
Ohio State edged Wisconsin, 21-14, in overtime Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium, marking the Badgers' second straight overtime loss at home this season. The margin actually represents Wisconsin's most lopsided loss of the year because the Badgers had lost their three other games by three points apiece.
The Badgers showed some resolve in battling back to tie the game in regulation with eight seconds remaining, but it wasn't enough. And the feeling among players was bittersweet.
Wisconsin (7-4, 4-3 in the Big Ten) won't win the Leaders Division, but it will play in the Big Ten championship on Dec. 1 as a result of NCAA sanctions to Ohio State (11-0, 7-0) and Penn State (7-4, 5-2).
