BYU football at Wisconsin 1

BYU senior defensive lineman Corbin Kaufusi (90) celebrates with the Cougars after BYU’s 24-21 upset of No. 6 Wisconsin in Madison on Sept. 15, 2018.

After the Badgers had completely overwhelmed the Cougars in Provo in 2017 and were coming in with national title aspirations, few observers gave BYU much of a chance as the visitors where 22-point underdogs.

But the Cougar defense limited the powerful Wisconsin ground game, while the BYU offense reeled off some big plays. A double pass from Aleva Hifo to Moroni Laulu-Pututau for a TD put the Cougars in front and they never gave up the lead.

BYU did need some help in the final seconds, but Wisconsin’s game-tying field goal attempt sailed wide and the Cougars picked up their biggest upset win since 2009.

It was a moment to savor for a team that had struggled so much and BYU fans made the most of the chance to bask in the glory of a stunning victory.
