Twitter reacts to Wisconsin Badgers comeback win over Nebraska

The Wisconsin Badgers (6-5, 4-4 Big Ten) trailed for the first 59:25 seconds of their Week 12 matchup with the Nebraska Cornhuskers, but that didn’t stop Interim head coach Jim Leonhard and company from securing the dub.

In a must-win contest, UW went on the road and defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers 15-14 in front of a sell-out crowd (not really, it’s just a lie the Huskers like to tell themselves), keeping the Freedom Trophy in the hands of the Wisconsin Badgers – just like it has been since 2014.

UW has now won nine straight meetings against Nebraska and, with today’s win, is now bowl eligible for the 21st consecutive season – extending the nation’s third-longest active bowl streak.

The Badger’s defense came to play yet again, allowing only 171 total yards of offense (106 passing, 65 rushing) on 3.5 yards per play – making it the first time in over 20 years UW’s defense has allowed under 200 yards of total offense in three consecutive games.

I’ll admit, I didn’t think there was any way in hell UW, at least in its current state, would score twice in the fourth quarter. That said, I couldn’t be happier to admit I was wrong. The offense scored two touchdowns in the final 10 minutes to give the Badgers their first fourth-quarter comeback win since 2018.
