Wisconsin over South Dakota State 59-10 on Saturday and next up the Badgers get real serious with Nebraska coming up on the schedule……..Another big day for former N.C. State QB Russell Wilson…..
Nick Toon scored on a 59-yard catch-and-run from quarterback Russell Wilson and added another score with 12 seconds left to send Wisconsin into halftime with a 31-3 lead.
Toon gave the credit to Wilson, who completed 19 of 25 passes for 345 yards and three touchdowns before taking a seat in the fourth quarter.
“Obviously, Russell’s a great player, a big part of that,” Toon said. “I’m not able to do what I can do if I don’t have someone that can get it to me. And Russell’s done a great job of getting the ball to me this year.”
Wilson said the Badgers’ newfound quick-strike ability on offense took the air out of a South Dakota team that stayed in the game into the second quarter. Wilson said that’s a function of the talent the Badgers have on offense.
“I think that was huge for our offense, and huge for our team in general,” Wilson said. “The defense did a great job of stopping them, getting us the ball back. When we can go down there and score and execute when we really need to, that’s a tough thing for an opposing team.”
