Twitter reacts to Wisconsin WR Keontez Lewis’ 51-yard touchdown grab

Despite Wisconsin falling behind early to Iowa, the Badgers were able to close the Hawkeyes’ lead to four points before halftime with an outstanding 51-yard yard receiving touchdown from wide receiver Keontez Lewis.

The Badgers have really struggled to move the ball in the first half, with their only other points resulting from a fumble recovery that gave them fantastic field position. The big catch from Lewis came on a third-and-18 play where the Wisconsin offense was getting stone-walled at midfield. Fortunately, the UCLA transfer blew past the Iowa cornerback to allow him to run untouched in the endzone.

It has been a defensive battle so far in the cold and flurries, but hopefully, the Badgers can get the ball moving in the second half to keep the Heartland Trophy.
