Badgers moving on to Purdue
Won't let Arizona State error change focus
MADISON — No. 24 Wisconsin is trying to move past an excruciating and bizarre loss, and focus on its Big Ten opener against Purdue.
The Badgers (2-1) lost 32-30 to Arizona State when officials erred in allowing the clock to expire, denying the Badgers the opportunity to attempt a possible game-winning field goal.
The Pac-12 issued a statement Monday acknowledging the errors by its officiating crew, saying it has “reprimanded and taken additional sanctions against officials” in their handling of the final seconds.
Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland says the team doesn’t care about the Pac-12’s decision. A loss is a loss and now it’s time to get ready for Purdue.
Borland says: “You can’t afford to dwell.”
