Football:Badgers hold on against Arizona State to finish the season on a high note

The Wisconsin Badgers (9-4, 6-3 Big Ten) defeated the Arizona State Sun Devils (8-5, 6-3 Pac-12) 20-13 in the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl on Thursday night.

A strong offensive performance from the Badgers in the first half along with a stout defensive showing was enough to get the win and extend Paul Chryst’s bowl game record to 6-1.

UW got off to an impressive start on offense, holding a 14-3 lead after the first quarter thanks to touchdowns by John Chenal and Jake Ferguson. The defense had a little trouble early with the scrambling of ASU quarterback Jayden Daniels but held the Sun Devils to just a pair of field goals in the first half.
