From "The Wisconsin Badgers defeat the USC Trojans 23-21"

"In the last three minutes of play, USC was up by only one point. The Badgers entered USC territory. Wisconsin kicked a 29-yard field goal to take the lead.

Joel Stave had struggled to stop his nose from bleeding on the sidelines but returned to the quarterback position for the final minutes of the game.

The Badgers' Sojourn Shelton intercepted Kessler in the final two minutes. Cichy had pressured Kessler, like he didn't already have NFL scouts drooling.

In the last 25 seconds, Kessler was pressured again and threw the ball out of bounds. It was 2nd-and-10 from the 39-yard line. He threw to JuJu but it was incomplete. Kessler threw one final time, on the fourth down, it was short, out of bounds and incomplete. Very confusing. It was the last chance USC had.

The Badgers took the game 23 - 21."
