Bielema says Badgers will bounce back on Saturday against Iowa

Posted:

(AP)-  Wisconsin's tailspin started last season after a loss to Ohio State. Faced with a similar scenario this week, coach Bret Bielema believes the Badgers will react differently.

Wisconsin (5-1, 2-1 Big Ten) lost to Ohio State 31-13 on Saturday despite dominating most facets of the game, including time of possession. But the Badgers couldn't avoid giving up big plays and Ohio State scored twice on interception returns and once on a kick return.

Now Wisconsin hosts No. 11 Iowa (6-0, 2-0), which narrowly beat Michigan on Saturday. The last time the Hawkeyes and Badgers met, Iowa extended Wisconsin's losing streak to four games.

Bielema says he doubts his team would ever be in a similar situation they found themselves in last year.
