Big Ten Championship Game Thread 2: Electric Boogaloo

It's almost frightening how much this game looks like the first: early 14-point deficit, then a monster second quarter to go in with the lead. This should tell you everything you need to know:

First 11:48: Wisconsin 155 yards, 3 TDs; MSU 59 yards, 1 TD, 1 turnover.

Next 18:12: Wisconsin -4 yards, 0 first downs; MSU 258 yards, 3 TDs + a two-point conversion, 1 turnover, 1 missed FG (from 51).

We're even on the no-penalty kick again; one penalty for 5 yards in the first half (a false start which, conveniently, wiped out a sack).

Dantonio has gone deep into the bag of tricks as well: a play-action bomb on 4th and 1 for our second touchdown, a short-yardage hook and lateral between Keith Nichol and B.J. Cunningham for the third, a fake PAT to take the lead.

Now, how about we finish this one off without having to resort to the Rocket again?
