Badgers remain perfect, but not pretty


MADISON (WKOW) -- Scott Tolzien threw for two touchdowns, Zach Brown ran for two more and Wisconsin blocked a punt for another in the Badgers' 44-14 rout of Wofford on Saturday to remain undefeated.

Tolzien finished 15 of 20 for 159 yards in his third career start and freshman Chris Borland flipped head over heels to block a punt as the Badgers turned a slow start into an easy win early in the second quarter.

But questions remain for Wisconsin (3-0) heading into the Big Ten Conference opener against Michigan State next Saturday.  The Badgers fumbled six times, losing three of them, and their two heralded backs both had shaky performances.

Sophomore John Clay got the start after a career-best 143 yards against Fresno State last week, but finished with 70 yards on 12 carries and fumbled three times.

Wofford fell to 1-2 on the season.
