Illinois vs. Wisconsin score: Badgers lead a close one after 3 quarters

After three quarters of play from Madison, the Badgers lead Illinois 10-7. Both defenses have held when they had to, and the game is still up for grabs with 15 minutes to play.

The Illini defense did a good job for most of the first half, and they started the third quarter by forcing Wisconsin to go three and out. They started their first possession of the half from their own 12 yard line, and were forced to punt despite moving the ball into the Wisconsin half of the field.

Wisconsin took the lead on their next possession, as Kyle French connected on a 46-yard field goal to put Wisconsin up 10-7. They started that drive on their own 13, but managed to move to the Illinois 29. The big play of the drive was a 27-yard pass from Joel Stave to Derek Watt for 27 yards with a 15-yard penalty added on to the end of it.

Wisconsin started to establish their ground game in the third quarter despite the Illini doing an excellent job against Montee Ball. Ball has only 20 yards on the ground through the end of three quarters.
