MADISON, Wis. -- Josh Thompson had a chance to be the hero. However, the kicker missed a 36-yard field with 6 seconds remaining as Utah State lost 16-14 to No. 22 Wisconsin.

Utah State blew an 11-point halftime lead as Wisconsin scored 13 second-half.

Utah State quarterback Chuckie Keeton threw two first-half touchdown passes to Kerwynn Williams and Matt Austin. The Badgers answered in the second half with an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown by Kenzel Doe and a 17-yard TD run by Montee Ball.
