Wisconsin's team plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Pittsburgh Tuesday on its way back from the Badgers' game against Maryland.

The No. 5 Badgers lost to the Terrapins, 59-53, and were forced to spend the night in Pittsburgh.

The plane eventually arrived in Pittsburgh and the Badgers boarded their flight early Wednesday afternoon.

A few hours later they were finally back in Madison.

The loss was Wisconsin's third of the season and snapped a 10-game winning streak. The Badgers have three games left in the regular season, beginning with Sunday's matchup with Michigan State at home.
