Upset: BYU knocks off No. 6 Wisconsin to thwart Playoff chances


Brigham Young held on to upset No. 6 Wisconsin 24-21 on Saturday, handing the Badgers a home loss that puts a major dent in their Playoff hopes. 

Wisconsin missed a potential tying field goal in the final minute, and unranked BYU held on for the first major upset of the college football season. 

Squally Canada was the star for the Cougars, tallying 118 yards and two touchdowns off 11 carries. 

Wisconsin’s Alex Hornibrook went 18-for-28 in the air for 190 yards, with no touchdowns and an interception. 

BYU used a moment-dictating trick play at the 12:17-minute mark of the second quarter that saw wide receiver Aleva Hifo connect with Moroni Laulu-Pututau from 31 yards out. The game was knotted at 14-14 at halftime. 

After both teams scored in the second half, a Skyler Southam 45-yard field goal with 9:58 left broke a 21-all tie and proved to be the deciding score.
