Donovan connects on 50-yard pass, then 28-yard TD to tie game

COLUMBUS, Ohio - It didn't take long for Wisconsin to knot this game up at 10-10, as they strung together three plays of over 20 yards. The first game on the opening handoff when Brown raced for a 22-yarder before being tripped up at his 24. Donovan then hooked up with Paul Hubbard on a 3rd-and-3 play for 50 yards to take the ball to the Buckeyes' 13-yard line. A chop block sent the Badgers back 15 yards and onto the Buckeyes' 28 yard, but it proved to make little difference since Donovan connected yet again on the very next play with Beckum for a 28-yard touchdown pass.

Donovan is now 8-of-11 in this game for 126 yards. Though the Buckeyes have been applying constant pressure - often even successful - the secondary seems to be struggling. If those problems aren't addressed soon, this game could start turning badly for the Buckeyes. Ohio State was just forced to punt, so Wisconsin will take over on their own 37 following an illegal block to the back.
