Ohio State Stuns Wisconsin, 33-29

Ohio State's Devin Smith

Wisconsin at Ohio State - Football Highlights

(AP) Braxton Miller threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith with 20 seconds left to give Ohio State a 33-29 victory over No. 12 Wisconsin on Saturday night. It was almost exactly seven days earlier that the Badgers were beaten 37-31 at Michigan State on a miracle pass on the final play of the game. The latest heartbreak, just like that one, wasn’t confirmed until it passed a video review. The Badgers (7-2, 3-2) drove to the Ohio State 45 – and got an extra play after time elapsed due to a defensive facemask call – but linebacker Andrew Sweat hit quarterback Russell Wilson as he was throwing to end the game and touch off a wild celebration. Read the full AP recap, see the box score and check out the Big Ten scoreboard.
