On Saturday afternoon, the Wisconsin Badgers hosted the Michigan Wolverines in a highly-anticipated Big Ten contest. The Badgers entered the game as the favorite in a game that could determine the eventual Big Ten title game.

Wisconsin absolutely dominated the first half and went into the locker room with a 28-0 lead.

Michigan's offensive woes led the team to make a change at the quarterback position. The Wolverines benched Shea Patterson in favor of Dylan McCaffrey - who lasted less than a quarter.

McCaffrey took a nasty shot to the head and had his head bounce off the turn. He looked to go limp for a second and laid on the ground for a moment before being helped off the field.

Here's video of the play.

McCaffrey left the game and Shea Patterson came back and led the Wolverines to a touchdown and two-point conversion.

The Badgers lost two defensive players on the touchdown drive to targeting penalties, but still lead the game 35-8.

Can Michigan find some offensive firepower and make this one interesting in the final quarter? Wisconsin's defense has been stout all season long, giving up just one touchdown on the year.

Stay tuned for the latest from the game.
