  • Taylor now owns 10 career games of 150-plus yards, including 5 this season.
  • Taylor’s 71-yard touchdown run in the first quarter was the third-longest run of his career (88 vs. Nebraska, Oct. 6, 2018; 75 at Nebraska, Oct. 7, 2017).
  • Senior ILB T.J. Edwards made a season-high 14 tackles, the 9th double-digit tackle game of his career. Edwards has recorded double-digit stops in 3 of the Badgers’ last 5 games.
  • The 14 tackles is the second-highest total of Edwards’ career, trailing only the 16 he tallied vs. Purdue as a freshman in 2015.
  • Senior LG Michael Deiter made the 51st start of his career, matching CB Sojourn Shelton (2013-16) for the most by any player in school history. Deiter has started 51 consecutive games — the longest stretch in school history — dating back to 2015. He has never missed a start in his career.
