Mike Lucas points to a common stat in the Badgers' four losses this year, the most recent on Saturday at the hands of the Penn State Nittany Lions. Wisconsin fell 22-10 on Saturday.
"The common thread in losses; 4of13;2of11;4of12;4of15.Third down conversions have haunted this UW offense, especially against the better B10 teams. PennSt had 72 plays with Trace McSorley executing high percentage passing game. QB efficiency (19of25) spells difference at any level"
"In August this matchup had the look of a College GameDay appearance previewing maybe a rematch for B10 title in Indy. Seems like years ago for the Badgers who have become so one dimensional not even Jonathan Taylor (185 yards)can bail them out vs good but not great PennSt defense"
