Wisconsin came back from a 16-point first-half deficit against the Commodores to tie the game in the second half, but UW couldn't hold on as Vandy ran away with the win. "I did like the fight I saw in the kids in that Vanderbilt T 48 // VARSITY December 5, 2013 game," UW head coach Bobbie Kelsey said. "They could have folded it up and called it a day, but they didn't. "We would have liked to have won the game, obviously, but it was a different type of body language in that game as opposed to the Alabama loss." UW returns home on Thursday to face Boston College in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
