Wisconsin Badgers accidentally shatter trophy while celebrating Duke’s Mayo Bowl win


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The #Wisconsin #Badgers captured the #Duke’s #Mayo #Bowl and the trophy that came along with it.

#And then they broke it.

#While dancing around to celebrate his team’s 42-28 victory over #Wake #Forest on #Wednesday, quarterback #Graham #Mertz dropped the football-shaped piece of #Lenox crystal, leaving it shattered on the floor of the locker room after it fell off its base.

“#We just wanted everybody to have a piece of that trophy,” #Wisconsin coach #Paul #Chryst joked.

#Mertz accounted for three touchdowns and #Wisconsin turned four second-half interceptions, all by different players, into 21 points to turn a close game into a near-rout of the #Demon #Deacons. #Five players scored touchdowns for the #Badgers.

#Mertz, a redshirt freshman, threw for 130 yards and ran for two short TDs as #Wisconsin (4-3) finished a rocky 2020 season on a high note.

“#Yeah, I dropped it,” #Mertz said sheepishly. “#That’s on me. #It happened.”

The #Badgers might be willing to forgive him.
