WATCH: Connelly, Bondoc Register Must-See Interception

EVANSTON, Ill. – With starting safety D’Cota Dixon missing his third straight game, senior, and Madison native, Evan Bondoc is getting another chance to shine. He’s not missing on his opportunity, albeit with a little help from inside linebacker Ryan Connelly.

Facing a third-and-6 on his own 19, Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson attempted to pass past the chains to receiver Bennett Skowronek was read perfectly by Connelly, who dove to his right and batted the ball with his outstretched hands right to Bondoc. Alertly, Bondoc secured the pass just inches above the turf for his second pick in many weeks.

Getting a first down on the Northwestern 29, Wisconsin’s offense needed only five plays and 2 minutes, 20 seconds to take a 7-0 lead.
