CHICAGO, Ill. (WSAW) - #18 Wisconsin football fell to Notre Dame 41-13 at Soldier Field in Chicago on Saturday. With the loss, the Badgers now fall to 1-2 on the season.

The game started with defense ruling the day as Notre Dame entered halftime leading Wisconsin 10-3. The Badgers were able to tie the game up on a short eight-yard pass from Graham Mertz to Kendric Pryor, Mertz’s first touchdown pass of the season.

After a late drive, Wisconsin would take the lead on Collin Larsh’s second field goal of the game, a 27-yard one. On the ensuing kick-off though, Notre Dame’s Chris Tyree returned the kick 96 yards for a touchdown.

With a chance to respond Mertz would fumble the ball. Notre Dame scored a touchdown on the next possession to make it 24-13.
