Badgers' giveaways making it a game
By Adam Rittenberg
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Wisconsin entered Saturday as one of the nation's most disciplined teams with the football, committing only seven turnovers in the first 10 games.
The trend continued until just before halftime, when Scott Tolzien threw an interception, ending a streak of 24 straight completed passes. The pick gave Michigan a bit of life, and the Wolverines have carried over the momentum.
Michigan quickly converted an Isaac Anderson fumble into a touchdown and is right back in this game, down 24-14. Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson has come alive as a passer and receiver Darryl Stonum is making big plays.
Wisconsin has to be a bit concerned, considering what happened the last time it visited the Big House. I still don't think Michigan can stop Wisconsin's offense today, but the Badgers can't keep stopping themselves.
