From David Gilreath’s opening kickoff return for a touchdown to the final whistle, fans were eager to celebrate an OSU loss on Oct. 16.[/media-credit]It was perfect.The underdog had the No. 1 team in the nation at home, a place where those rankings haven’t mattered much. It was time to make a statement, to let the rest of the country know Wisconsin was for real.Mission accomplished – twice.As soon as the 2010 football schedule was released, Oct. 16 was circled and starred. The Buckeyes – who everyone loves to hate, and who the Badgers have played pretty evenly over the past decade – were coming to Camp Randall. It was a night game, and ESPN’s College GameDay was in town. Something special had to happen against the top-ranked team, right?And following a conference play-opening loss to Michigan State that made the Badgers look doomed for disappointment, the OSU game loomed larger than ever. Jim Tressel’s squad looked like it might steamroll UW. Bret Bielema’s boys had Rose Bowl aspirations that would hinge on an upset of OSU.Drama, anyone?David Gilreath finally returned a kickoff for a touchdown – the opening kickoff, nonetheless – and Madison erupted. Fifty-nine minutes of play later, the Badgers were mobbed by a deluge of ecstatic fans celebrating a 31-18 win over the Buckeyes.Season saved, statement made.And like any good tale, there was the opportunity for a sequel. But would it play out like “The Godfather, Part II” or “Blues Brothers 2000”?When Ohio State’s basketball team regained the No. 1 ranking just in time for a trip to the Kohl Center, Herald Sports appropriately ran the headline, “We’ve heard this story before.”Down by 15 points early in the second half, it looked like that $100 for the game ticket had gone to waste. UW couldn’t score and OSU was running – practically sprinting – away with a huge road win.But then Jordan Taylor woke up and showed America why he is one of the nation’s top point guards. With 13:21 to play, he keyed one of the greatest Wisconsin comebacks, overcoming a 15-point second-half deficit for just the sixth time in UW history. Taylor scored 18 points in that last 13-and-a-half minutes, playing a direct part in 34 of UW’s final 39 points.Taylor finished with 27 points, making the game final, UW 71, OSU 67.Again, No. 1 Ohio State came to Madison. And again, the Buckeyes could only trudge off the playing surface as Badger fans stormed out of the stands to celebrate.How often does a team get the chance to beat the No. 1 team at home in a season, let alone twice? And how many teams capitalize on both opportunities? Both were great moments, and both complemented each other; neither was as impressive unless the other was considered.So yes, Wisconsin taking down No. 1 Ohio State at home is the top moment of the 2010-2011 year. As for which particular win, that’s up to you.

Alexandre Lacazette, who was magnificent throughout, found Nicolas Pepe, who picked out Aubameyang perfectly at the back post to score.It was a wonderful goal and the 25 minutes that followed up to halftime were the best Arsenal has produced under Arteta since he arrived in December. The defense was superb, with Martinez not having to make a single save, and going forward the Gunners produced some excellent combinations, with the final ball all that was lacking.The inevitable onslaught from City came in the second half and in previous meetings Arsenal would have folded. But not on Saturday night. Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos were magnificent in front of a defense marshaled superbly by David Luiz, dropping in and offering real protection.City dominated possession, but only mustered one shot on target — with Martinez saving well down to his left after Riyad Mahrez had cut inside and gotten a shot away.And then on 71 minutes, Arsenal broke away and put the game to bed. Pepe was again involved, chasing down a clearance before finding Kieran Tierney. The Scotland international spotted Aubameyang’s run and there was only one outcome once the Gabon international had sprinted clear. City tried to raise itself but couldn’t. Cross after cross came in, but Luiz dealt with everything that came his way and anything that bypassed the Brazilian was collected by Martinez.City was well beaten in the end. Outfought on the pitch and out-thought off it. This may be Arsenal’s worst league season in 25 years, but for the first time in a long time it looks like it has a plan.The Gunners hit rock bottom during the final weeks of Unai Emery. The long journey back toward the top looks as if it has begun. This was a victory that came straight from the training ground, one in which every single player played their part. Fortune may have favored Arsenal when it saw off Premier League champion Liverpool in midweek, but it deserved everything it got at Wembley on Saturday evening.MORE: Pep claims he would have stayed at City even it club was droppedTactically, Arteta got it spot on. It was a win that highlighted why, after the dark days of the first half of the season, there is real cause for optimism now in north London.Time and time again we’ve seen Arsenal sides capitulate in the face of superior teams. Since beating City here in the 2017 semifinal the Gunners have played them seven times, losing all seven, conceding 20 and scoring just two.But they shrugged that record aside to book their spot in what will be the club’s 21st FA Cup final, where they will meet Chelsea or Manchester United on Aug. 1.This has been a horrible season for Arsenal at times, one of the worst in recent memory. The fact it dropped below Burnley in the Premier League table moments before kickoff said it all.But the past week has shown that, under Arteta, there is light at the end of the tunnel.In terms of quality, the gap between Arsenal, Liverpool and City is vast. Its been clear to see over the two games in the past few days. But the signs of improvement under Arteta are undeniable.And while they were gifted their goals against Liverpool in midweek, at Wembley the Gunners earned them through fabulous moves for which City had no answer. Both were scored by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, his 24th and 25th of the season, but both came from moves that started deep inside their own half. There’s just something about Arsenal and the FA Cup.Mikel Arteta’s side arrived at Wembley with next to no one giving it a chance against Manchester City, yet it’s the Gunners and not Pep Guardiola’s men who will return next month for the final after a fabulous 2-0 win.
