Jonathan Taylor ran for 219 yards on 30 carries, including a 67-yard touchdown, and No. 7 Wisconsin relied on its stifling defense to overcome a three-turnover afternoon and beat Purdue 17-9 on Saturday.
With the victory, the Badgers (6-0, 3-0) are now bowl-eligible for the 16th-consecutive season and extended the longest active streak of qualifying in the Big Ten.
Alex Hornibrook was 13 of 18 for 199 yards and a score, but threw two interceptions for the Badgers, who held on to beat another division foe and take a commanding lead in the Big Ten West.
