Badgers win double overtime thriller over Fresno 34-31

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin safety Chris Maragos came up with an interception in the second overtime, and Philip Welch kicked a 22-yard field goal to give the Badgers a 34-31 victory over Fresno State at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.

It was an ideal end to a rough week for Wisconsin, which was able to field its starters despite an outbreak of flulike symptoms that spread through the team.

Scott Tolzien threw a 6-yard touchdown to Nick Toon to take the lead on the Badgers' first overtime possession. But Fresno State quarterback Ryan Colburn hit Seyi Ajirotutu in the back of the end zone to force a second overtime.

Maragos then picked off Colburn in the end zone, and the Badgers drove for the decisive field goal.
