(AP) _ Rafael Gaglianone made a 46-yard field goal with four seconds left after missing from 39 yards just over a minute earlier, giving Wisconsin a 23-21 victory over Nebraska on Saturday.

Fullback Andy Janovich broke a 55-yard touchdown run with 3:38 left to give Nebraska the lead, but the Cornhuskers (2-4, 0-2 Big Ten) for the second straight week couldn’t put away their opponent. All four of Nebraska’s losses have come on its opponent’s final offensive play.

The Huskers, protecting a one-point lead, played it safe after Gaglianone hit the right upright with his field-goal try with 1:26 left. Wisconsin (4-2, 1-1) got the ball back at its 30 with 1:03 to play and drove to the Nebraska 28, where Gaglianone lined up for his game-winner on third down.

Dare Ogunbowale rushed for 117 yards, most coming after starting Wisconsin running back Taiwan Deal went out with an injury to his left ankle in the first quarter. Joel Stave was 25 of 50 for 322 yards and a touchdown for the Badgers.
