Badgers convert miscue into touchdown

October, 2, 2010
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- I had a sense all week that today's game would come down to quarterback play.

Right now, Wisconsin's Scott Tolzien has the edge on Michigan State's Kirk Cousins. Wisconsin converted a Cousins' interception into a touchdown to take a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter.

The Badgers' eight-play, 74-yard drive was mostly classic power football, but Tolzien made the biggest play with a perfect throw to tight end Jacob Pedersen on third-and-4 from the Spartans' 42. Pedersen beat linebacker Eric Gordon and went for 26 yards, setting up a James White touchdown run on the next play.

Cousins has a habit of hesitating on passes and then throwing them anyway. He's such a smart guy that I wonder if he overthinks himself sometimes. I doubt we'll see a lot of mistakes on either side in this one, so Cousins needs to maker better decisions going forward.
