NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Auburn scored twice in the final 3:30 to snap a 14-14 tie and defeat Wisconsin 28-14 in the Music City Bowl at the Coliseum.

It was just the second defeat for the Badgers in nine bowl appearances during the Alvarez era.

Jim Sorgi had connected with Lee Evans on a 12-yard touchdown pass with 8:52 remaining. Sorgi then hit Owen Daniels for a two-point conversion that tied the game at 14.

Wisconsin stopped Auburn on the ensuing possession and drove to midfield before Will Herring intercepted a Sorgi pass at the Auburn 13-yard line. The Tigers then marched 87 yards in six plays, culminating in a 2-yard TD run by Ronnie Brown. The Tigers recovered a Sorgi fumble less than a minute later and iced the game on a one-yard TD run by Cadillac Williams.

Auburn took a 7-6 lead at the half and expanded that edge to 14-6 after three quarters before the Badgers knotted the affair midway through the final quarter.

The Tigers held a 197-58 advantage on the ground and a 354-261 edge in total yards. Auburn had three players -- Williams (68), Jason Campbell (67) and Brown (62) -- rush for at least 60 yards. UW's Anthony Davis ran for 77 yards in his most extensive action since the second game of the season.
