T.J. Edwards got Wisconsin on the scoreboard first Saturday with a big defensive play against Maryland.
Edwards picked off Terps quarterback Max Bortenschlager and returned it 54 yards for a pick-6 that put the Badgers ahead 7-0 in the first quarter. Bortenschlager was pressured by fellow linebacker Garret Dooley, who hit the quarterback and forced him into a poor throw.
Another Edwards. Another long @B1GFootball TD.

The pick was Edwards’ sixth career interception and third of this season. However, it was the first one that he has returned for a touchdown.
Edwards is the fourth Wisconsin player to have a pick-6 this season in just seven games. Safeties Joe Ferguson and Natrell Jamerson as well as linebacker Chris Orr have also accomplished the feat, as pointed out by Andy Baggot.
