Huskers Fall in Overtime: Wisconsin’s Dare Ogunbowale scored on an 11-yard run in overtime, and No. 11 Wisconsin held on to beat No. 7 Nebraska 23-17 to hand the Cornhuskers their first loss of the season.
   The Badgers stopped Nebraska on fourth-and-8 from the 23 when defensive back D’Cota Dixon swatted away a pass in the end zone from Tommy Armstrong Jr. intended for Stanley Morgan Jr.
   Nebraska came back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. Drew Brown’s 35-yard field goal with 3:43 left tied it at 17.
