MADISON, Wis. — The defensive statistics for Wisconsin in its 35-6 hammering of Northwestern were stunning.
Against a team averaging 39 points and 474 yards a game, UW held the Wildcats to their lowest rushing total in six years (44 yards), their lowest point total in seven years and without a touchdown for the first time in 86 games. Also, seven players recorded sacks.
