Wisconsin Vs. Michigan State Score: Badgers Fail To Convert Two-Point Conversion, Down In 4th Quarter, 39-34

The Wisconsin Badgers were so close to tying the game at 36 early in the fourth quarter, but they were unable to complete the two-point conversion. The Spartans then kicked a field goal on the next drive, moving the two-point lead to a five-point lead, 39-34.

Wisconsin's Russell Wilson completed four straight passes to bring the team to Michigan State's 12-yard line. A pass interference call moved the team to the two-yard line, setting up a Montee Ball touchdown catch after he lost three yards on his first try.

The Spartans started the next drive at its own 40-yard line. Le'Veon Bell had several small runs, but it was B.J. Cunningham who wound up having the big 24-yard run. The drive stalled inside Wisconsin's 10-yard line, which led to Dan Conroy kicking a field goal.
