A planned heist: Torchio’s pick-six sparks Badgers blowout win
MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin needed a spark Saturday night and that’s where John Torchio entered the picture.
Late in the first quarter, the senior safety picked off a pass and returned it for 100 yards for the Badgers first touchdown of the night. That interception return set a record for the longest pick-six in school history, but the best part? He planned it.
“Funny story actually,” Junior Outside Linebacker Nick Herbig said. “Right before that happened, I was getting lined up and Torch goes, ‘hey Herby I’m about to pick this one.”
So once again, the jewelry thief lives up to his nickname.
