With the sixth-ranked Badgers (13-1) sputtering towards a second straight defeat, Alex Van Ginkel stepped in front of a wide receiver screen intended for Braxton Berrios on the Miami 23-yard line.
That three-second play turned the game upside down and sparked a string of 21 unanswered points for the Badgers in their 34-24 victory at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. The Orange Bowl win was UW’s fourth straight in a bowl game and its 13th this season, a program record.
