MADISON, Wis. -- Prior to the Wisconsin football team's historic win over No. 1 Ohio State on Saturday, ESPN College GameDay profiled Badgers quarterback Scott Tolzien and his relationship with young Jaxson Hinkens as part of the show's visit to Madison.

The story, delivered by ESPN's Tom Rinaldi, highlighted the special relationship between Tolzien and Hinkens, a 6-year-old whose battle with cancer has inspired the Badgers and taught them something about perseverance and optimism that goes well beyond the football field.
