Here are the
Badgers James White and
Montee Ball battered the Minnesota Gophers into submission at Camp Randall
Stadium Saturday, combining for five touchdowns in a 38-13 win. The offensive
line which had so much trouble doing anything when the season started, ripped
huge holes in the Gopher defense this time. White carried the ball 15 times for
175 yards and three touchdowns, with Ball adding 24 carries for 166 and two
scores. The Badgers have won 21 straight home games. The Gophers, who started
the season 4-0, have lost three in a row and all were Big Ten Conference games.
Freshman Philip Nelson was the surprise starter at quarterback for Minnesota
and performed well. Nelson wasn't told about the assignment until the team
arrived in Madison Friday. He connected on 13-of-24 passes for 149 yards and
two TDs. He had two passes intercepted, while also rushing for 67 yards.
The University of
Wisconsin-Oshkosh Titans have a 7-0 record for the first time in 89 seasons
after being UW-Whitewater 28-13. That was the first WIAC loss for the Warhawks
in 27 games. Oshkosh scored on its first possession and never trailed. Three
touchdown passes by Nate Wara put the Titans up 21-0 at half. Whitewater did
manage to cut the margin to 21-13 in the second half, but got no closer. The
Warhawks were able to gain just 55 yards on the ground against a tough Oshkosh
defense. The teams were almost even in total yards. Whitewater's record falls
to 5-2 overall, 3-1 in conference play. Oshkosh is 4-0.
Both teams bring 3-3
records into today's game at St. Louis, but the suddenly resurgent Green Bay
Packers are favored. Six touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers led the Pack to a
42-24 rout of previously unbeaten Houston last week. With four defensive
starters sidelined, it helps Green Bay that the Rams are one of the weakest
scoring teams in the league, ranking 30th with just nine touchdowns in six
games. However, they haven't lost at home yet and they showed signs against
Miami last Sunday by rolling up 462 total yards. Kickoff is at 12 noon Central
time. The stout St. Louis defense will be challenged by a Packer passing attack
good for 892 yards and 13 TDs in the last three games.
A three-point shot by
Washington Wizard A.J. Price with 30 seconds to go iced it for the visitors.
They beat Milwaukee 102-94 in an exhibition game at the Bradley Center. Price
had 17 points and 11 assists, while Trevor Booker scored 22. Monta Ellis scored
19 to lead the Bucks, while Brandon Jennings added 16 and seven rebounds. But,
Milwaukee's two guards turned the ball over a combined 10 times. A
three-pointer from Jennings had put the Bucks up 87-86 with seven and a half
minutes to go, but the offense stalled the Washington took the win.
The only Wisconsin golfer
remaining in the field at the McGladrey Classic in Pewaukee's Mark Wilson. He
is just six shots off the pace going into today's final round in Sea Island,
Georgia. Wilson is tied for 19th at seven under par after firing a four-under
66 yesterday. Davis Love the Third and Jim Furyk are tied at the top with
scores of 13 under par.
Ricky Stenhouse Junior
made up a lot of ground to win yesterday's Kansas Lottery 300. At one point,
Stenhouse was two laps down before smoking the field at the Kansas Speedway.
The race went six extra laps and that's the main reason leader Kyle Busch ran
out of fuel. Austin Dillon finished second in the Nationwide Series race.
Wisconsin's Danica Patrick finished 10th and Paul Menard was 16th.
