MI responded by driving down to the Wisconsin one-yard line before redshirt freshman quarterback fumbled and the Badgers recovered. Peters suffered a possible shoulder or head injury after landing hard following a hit near the end of the third quarter.
That led to a 39-yard field goal, giving MI a 10-7 lead with 6 minutes, 36 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
Immediately following an interception that allowed MI to take a lead late in the third quarter, a UW offense that had managed less than 100 total yards to that point produced four plays of more than 20 yards over two consecutive touchdown drives, leading the fifth-ranked Badgers to a 24-10 victory over the Wolverines and their first 11-0 start in program history.
MI managed to tie the game with 2:24 to go in the first half on a Ben Mason touchdown run to cap an impressive 84-yard drive, but the missed call could certainly play a huge factor in a low-scoring game.
Last season, Allen completed exactly 56 percent of his passes for 3,203 yards, 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
In a back-and-forth, sometimes brutal Big Ten battle against the No. 24 Michigan Wolverines (5-3 Big Ten, 8-3 overall), the No. 5 Wisconsin Badgers (8-0, 11-0) needed their quarterback to step up and be the difference-maker.
At the start of the season, Peters was actually the Wolverines' third-string quarterback behind Wilton Speight and O'Korn. O'Korn was 2-of-8 for 19 yards. Officials reviewed the play but ruled there was not enough evidence to overturn it.
- Khaleke Hudson almost blocked a punt early in the second quarter, a play that turned into a controversial no-call when Wisconsin punter Anthony Lotti came down on him.
