Wisconsin Badgers football coach Paul Chryst recaps Wisconsin's win over Purdue on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium, 45-24.
Meeting with the media after the game, Chryst repeated his refrain from the season in crediting a total team victory on Saturday:
"Offensively, defensively, special teams, each unit contributed. Offensively, obviously, we were able to score a lot of points but (we’ve) got to take care of four turnovers. That's not really good, but they just kept going. I liked the way they responded and kept persevering. I think we were pretty good on third down and had a fourth-down conversion.
Defensively, off of those four turnovers, I think they got one score off of it. That's a pretty good response. Special teams, you got to start with Zach Hintze. That was a heck of a field goal at the end of the half and obviously you saw the energy it gave guys. And credit to Purdue. That's a good football team, and we got tested. But proud of the way guys battled and kept fighting and to get this win. It's big."
Chryst also took a moment to talk about Jonathan Taylor's curtain call in the fourth quarter of the win:
"I know what our guys on the sideline felt and just thought it was the right thing to do."
