Michigan QB Brandon Peters carted off field with injury

He was 9-for-18 with 157 passing yards and one fumble before being knocked out of the game.

Wisconsin got its signature win against No. 24 MI, avenging the 14-7 loss from last season.

Wisconsin hosts MI for the eighth meeting between the two teams when they are ranked in the AP poll. That set up the Badgers' next touchdown for a 21-10 lead with 34 seconds left in the third quarter.

They Wisconsin players, of course, were referring to Michigan's matchup next Saturday against the hated Ohio State Buckeyes. Peters needed help to get on the cart.

Wisconsin smelled blood. The offense drove 61 yards in less than two minutes - warp speed for a team that has made it this far with its suffocating defense and its 1,000-yard rusher - capped off by a creative wrinkle rushing play that freshman receiver Kendric Pryor took 32 yards to the house.

Ben Mason scored the Wolverines' lone touchdown on a one-yard run in the second quarter.

Hornibrook threw an interception in the third quarter, as sophomore linebacker Devin Bush picked him off on the Badgers' 29-yard line at the 8:33 mark.

Notably, Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor broke off a 52-yard run, bringing him to 108 yards on 16 carries. MI has run the ball well lately, but the Badgers are giving up only 81.5 yards a game on the ground.

Hornibrook finished 9 of 19 for 143 yards, but bounced back from the turnover early in the third quarter with some of his best throws of the season.

The mission for Wisconsin has been clear: To avoid its resume getting holes poked in it by the selection committee, the Badgers need to go 13-0, thus leaving little doubt.

While Hornibrook's numbers against MI don't jump off the page, he came up with a couple of huge throws in key situations to lead the Badgers to a win.

Taylor had three catches for 79 yards and a touchdown.

When all was said and done, the Badgers won the game 24-10, dropping MI to 8-3 on the season.

Prior to the injury, Saturday's contest was a step in the right direction for the true freshman against one of the best defenses in college football. As long as he's healthy, the Wolverines should feel optimistic for the future with Peters leading a stacked roster. That gave the Badgers a lead they wouldn't give back.

Pass protection was once again sketchy.

While that's rarely a problem for Wisconsin, the Badgers have had to replace a lot of stars on the line over the past few years and showed some cracks on Saturday.

You can catch MI battling Wisconsin on Fox. Still, Ohio State's front seven is looming as a major challenge, and the offensive line could be in trouble in a potential playoff game against a team like Alabama or Clemson.
