FAU to stay in Wisconsin due to Hurricane Irma

With Hurricane Irma due to make landfall in Florida this weekend, the Florida Atlantic football team will remain in Wisconsin indefinitely, AD Pat Chun told ESPN. The Badgers have offered the use of their training facilities, lodging and other resources.

Florida Atlantic set to stay at the same hotel from last night. From there, they'll use Wisconsin facilities and resources, including grief counselors, to figure out their next steps. A lot of uncertainty for the program. But they're trying to stay positive.

Taylor's big game lifts Wisconsin past FAU (0:43)

I think Wisconsin has a running game that will generate an abundance of yardage this season. But so many questions: Can Hornibrook consistently throw deep? What about the secondary? Fumbles?

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

I think Florida Atlantic put up more of a fight than anyone expected, especially with the circumstances. Couldn't put together the string of big plays necessary to win here but respectable effort.

Taylor scores third TD for Badgers (0:20)

FAU athletic director Pat Chun said he thought the game offered some of the players a sense of relief from everything happening with Hurricane Irma. Now that it's the 4th quarter, important to remember how much these young men have on their minds this week. Not sure what they're going home to.

Jonathan Taylor is a true freshman with his third TD. Looks like a star already for the Badgers. Powerful back who always makes second effort after initial tackle attempt. So much burst with the ball.

Wisconsin safety Patrick Johnson out for the rest of the game with left arm injury.

FAU D-line doing a good job of getting into the backfield and disrupting plays. That's how they've remained in this game. But Wisconsin always a threat to rattle off big runs and run away with it.

Paul Chryst should be concerned about these breakdowns in coverage in the secondary. Daniel Parr has thrown crucial passes across the middle of the field and deep. Lane Kiffin attacking there. We have a game.
