Twitter reacts to Wisconsin S John Torchio’s first-half pick-six against Purdue

The Wisconsin Badgers started off hot on their opening drive against the Purdue Boilermakers and capped it off with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Skyler Bell. The Badgers’ defense immediately returned the favor with an outstanding pick-six by Wisconsin safety John Torchio.

On Purdue’s second play from scrimmage, Torchio jumped the slant from Boilermakers’ quarterback Aidan O’Connell to receiver Tyrone Tracy and took it to the endzone. This was Torchio’s fourth interception of the season, and he is now tied with Illinois defensive back Kendall Smith for the most interceptions in the Big Ten.

It is great to see the Badgers’ defense make a statement early against one of the best passing offenses in the Big Ten.

Below are some of Twitter’s best reactions to Wisconsin S John Torchio’s pick-six against the Purdue Boilermakers:

Wisconsin football is back?

It has been since 2003 that the Boilermakers have won against the Badgers...

Not everyone got to see the play
