Patterson-led No. 12 Michigan routs No. 15 Wisconsin

Badgers unable to overcome Michigan defense, lose 38-13 in Ann Arbor

Taylor had 19 carries for 132 yards in last year's 24-10 win over MI at home. They're also ranked No. 1 in passing yards allowed and No. 6 in total rushing defense.

With games coming up against rival Michigan State on the road and No. 8 at Penn State, no one in the maize and blue was in a mood to celebrate the big win over the Badgers.

This would be a sign of things to come. The Badgers will likely slip toward the back of the poll with the lopsided loss.

MI would stop Wisconsin and end up trying a 53-yard field goal that would be no good.

The first quarter would wind to a close after another fruitless Badger drive ended when punter Anthony Lotti sending one deep into MI territory.

MI struck first with 13:33 left in the first half on a 2-yard touchdown run by Higdon, which was set up by an 81-yard run down to the Wisconsin 5-yard line by Patterson.

The Badgers wouldn't be able to capitalize. In the next two plays, running back Karan Higdon would run it in the end zone for the touchdown to give the Wolverines the 7-0 lead.

Since 2011, only two teams have beaten Wisconsin by 10-plus points.

England needed to bowl 20 overs in Sri Lanka's chase to ensure a result and not have to play on the reserve day on Sunday. While 1st ODI was abandoned because of rain, England won 2nd ODI thanks to their powerful batting line-up.

The Wolverines looked poised to reach the end zone, led by Shea Patterson's smart decision-making as the Wolverine's plodded downfield.

They would not relinquish the lead for the remainder of the game. His first interception allowed MI to tack on a field goal and take a 13-7 lead at halftime.

The Badgers continued their offensive struggles, once again going three-and-out and extending their third down drought to 0-4. The Wolverines are giving up a nation-low 134 yards passing a game.

Harbaugh didn't sound concerned about his team's ability to match Michigan State's motivation to keep control of the series. The possibly pivotal drive was extended when the Badgers were called for roughing snapper Camaron Cheeseman on a punt. And sometimes, Patterson simply ran on his own after scrambling around.

MI then took a 21-7 lead at 10:21 in the third quarter on a 7-yard touchdown run by Patterson and a two-point conversion pass from Patterson to wideout Nico Collins. Sometimes you gotta hold fast Read...

Betting odds: MI is a nine point favorite. Rutgers has given up eight scrimmage plays of 50 yards or longer.

Disappointing became an understatement when Hornibrook was stuck with his second interception of the night. MI would only get three points off the turnover but still had the lead 13-7.

The Wolverines will face the Spartans at noon on Saturday in East Lansing.
