C: The only thing that could keep Montee Ball out of the end zone was a holding penalty. Interceptions just don't faze Scott Tolzien. Some of the credit for those three sacks goes to Purdue's talented front four and aggressive scheme.
B: Purdue controlled the ball far too much in the first half. When UW backed off the third-down blitzing after halftime, it led to interceptions by Culmer St. Jean, Mike Taylor and Antonio Fenelus. When healthy, Taylor is a true playmaker.
B: UW was fooled by Purdue's onsides kick at the start but was saved by a penalty. Philip Welch missed badly on his first field goal try. David Gilreath's 27-yard punt return gave UW field position that eventually led to a touchdown.
C+: Flat at the start, the Badgers were rocked by the aggressive Boilermakers but played with more juice in the second half and won going away. Four takeaways by the defense led to a lopsided score in an otherwise even game.
