Stanford’s defense held on an incredibly dumb play called by either Alvarez or offensive coordinator Matt Canada. The Badgers score nothing and instead of going into the locker room at halftime leading 21-17, they're trailing and would never take the lead again.
By the way, to the stupid halftime reporter who joins another in a long line of stupid halftime reporters who ask stupid questions, the question to Alvarez that never was asked should have been about that ridiculous play and decision.
Give credit to UW. Stanford is a much better team, but Bucky held in there.
So that means the greedy Barry loses all that extra compensation he would have earned had his players been victorious. A very small bit of justice in a Badger loss.
I do feel badly for the Badger players and all their fans.
