Badgers stay perfect as they begin Big Ten play


MADISON (AP) -- Scott Tolzien threw for 243 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, leading Wisconsin past Michigan State 38-30 on Saturday.

Garrett Graham caught three touchdown passes for the Badgers (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten), who avenged a last-second loss to the Spartans last season.

Michigan State (1-3, 0-1) turned the ball over four times after committing two turnovers in three non-conference games. Wisconsin converted three of the turnovers, including two first-half interceptions, into touchdowns.

Tolzien was 19-of-31, hitting Graham for three scores and Nick Toon for another. Graham tied the Wisconsin record for TDs in a game by a tight end and set the career mark (13). He finished with five catches for 58 yards.

John Clay rushed for 142 yards and a touchdown for the Badgers.
