That 14-point swing in the third quarter proved to swing the game for Wisconsin, as the Wolverines' backup quarterback John O'Korn was unable to bring his offense back after starter Brandon Peters was knocked out of the game with an injury.
For a team that has earned its reputation as reliable and boring this year, No. 5 Wisconsin sure can flip a game in a hurry. MI had 234 yards of offense.
Alex Hornibrook completed nine of 19 passes for 143 yards, a touchdown, and an interception for Wisconsin. His two connections with Taylor came on the heels of a three-and-out and an interception that set MI up to take the lead.
The Buckeyes (8-2, 6-1 Big Ten) sit a game up on Michigan State, Penn State and Michigan in the division, but already hold the tiebreaker over both the Spartans and Nittany Lions.
Peters was pressured by linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel after throwing an incompletion on third-and-5 from the MI 30 with about 3 minutes left in the third.
Before going down, Peters was 9 of 18 for 157 yards passing.
On the very next drive, the young quarterback found freshman wide receiver Danny Davis for 27 yards down the right sideline, setting up another score on the very next play. Peters needed help to get on the cart. The Wolverines won last season's meeting between the two teams. The late third-quarter surge came just in time for Camp Randall Stadium to turn into the House of Pain.
Wisconsin hosts MI for the eighth meeting between the two teams when they are ranked in the AP poll.
