It took a while for a touchdown to be scored Saturday in Evanston. But it was worth the wait when Jazz Peavy got his hands on an end-around.
The Wisconsin wide receiver took handoff on a reverse and took it 46 yards for the first Badgers touchdown of the game. Peavy evaded multiple defenders on the run and took it the house untouched.

It was the first rushing touchdown of Peavy’s career. The sophomore entered the game with 129 yards on 12 carries on the ground. He has three receiving touchdowns and had 408 receiving yards on the season entering Saturday’s game.
Peavy’s score put the Badgers up by two scores, but Northwestern answered with a touchdown in the final minute of the half to make it 10-7.
