Tanner Morgan, Gophers
The fifth-year senior quarterback completed 11 of 16 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown, recovering nicely from a first-half interception that Wisconsin returned for a touchdown. Morgan averaged 18.1 yards on is completion.
Justin Walley, Gophers
This honor likely should be shared by the entire defense, but Walley, a true freshman, made the game-changing interception on Wisconsin's first possession of the second half, outdueling Kendric Pryor for the ball and setting up the Gophers' first touchdown.
