MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin owes its six-game winning streak largely to its top-ranked defense’s knack for producing big plays and running back Braelon Allen.

The Badgers also are getting more production from a passing game that delivered more turnovers than touchdowns for much of the season.

Graham Mertz went 11 of 16 for 240 yards with three touchdown passes and an interception a 52-3 blowout at Rutgers.

He followed that up by going 18 of 23 for 216 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception in a 35-7 triumph over Northwestern.

The Badgers face Nebraska this weekend.
