Madison, Wis. • Another game against a BCS opponent. Another close defeat.

Josh Thompson missed a 36-yard field goal with 14 seconds remaining, giving Wisconsin a 16-14 win over Utah State at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday night.

The Aggies led 14-3 at halftime, dominated most of the action in the first half and had a chance to win it at the end.

But, at the end, special teams play once again did Gary Andersen's crew in.

The Aggies surrendered a punt return for a touchdown, shanked another punt — which led to Wisconsin scoring a touchdown — and missed the potential game-winner.
