While the latter part of that wasn't likely on Saturday with top teams facing cupcakes, the Badgers did control their destiny vs. the Wolverines.

Defense gave MI its best chance to upset Wisconsin on the road, and it looked as if that might happen for two-plus quarters.

MI quarterback Brandon Peters was treated at a local hospital here Saturday afternoon for a head injury, putting into doubt his status for next week's season finale against Ohio State.

Michigan's Ben Mason tied things up before halftime with a 1-yard touchdown run. Peoples-Jones reeled in a 48-yard catch to spark the drive, as Peters started to get into a rhythm in the biggest start of his young career.

Down 14-10, the Wolverines weren't out of it. Wisconsin's Alex Hornibrook has thrown 12 interceptions, while Michigan's Brandon Peters hasn't been asked to do much and hasn't turned it over. He finished 9 of 18 for 157 yards passing, hitting a few deep passes to receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones and tight end Zach Gentry. While the MI defense would keep things close, its offense couldn't do anything, and Wisconsin effectively ran the clock down for a huge 24-10 win.

The Wisconsin rushing offense is formidable, especially with freshman Jonathan Taylor, who is averaging 7 yards per carry. MI football had momentum and the ball around the Badgers 30. Six of UW's eight possession had ended in three plays or less, and Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor had been bottled up for the first time this season. The game featured 17 punts, a total pass completion percentage of 42.2 percent and some big plays on defense and special teams as both offenses faced formidable challenges against excellent defensive fronts.

While Hornibrook's numbers against MI don't jump off the page, he came up with a couple of huge throws in key situations to lead the Badgers to a win. Other than a kick from MI, that was the end of the line for the Wolverines' score.

Hornibrook needs to cut down his interception rate against better competition but adds an explosive element to the Wisconsin offense that wasn't there last season.

The Badgers held MI (8-3, 5-3) to 234 yards.

Prior to the injury, Saturday's contest was a step in the right direction for the true freshman against one of the best defenses in college football.
