Taylor Martinez led the Nebraska Cornhuskers all the way back from a 17 point deficit to beat the Wisconsin Badgers 30-27 with 20 straight second half points. Here are the video highlights of that comeback and the entire game.

Wisconsin took control thanks to a few Montee Ball plunges and a nice connection between Joel Stave and Jared Abbredens and seemed to be up in command up 27-10, but Martinez rallied Nebraska. It started with a Martinez designed quarterback keeper that allowed him to get up the middle into open space before scampering to the outside and score the go-ahead touchdown. Then Martinez found Kyler Reed on an in route in the end zone to bring Nebraska within two. Two Brett Maher field goals put Nebraska up by three early in the fourth.

Wisconsin had one last chance to try and tie or win the game, but Montee Ball not only couldn't get the first down on a 4th-and-short, but committed a rare fumble.
