Badgers stifle Hawkeyes


IOWA CITY, Iowa — Don’t count Wisconsin out of the Big Ten West race just yet.

Corey Clement ran for 134 yards and a touchdown and the 10th-ranked Badgers used a stout defense to beat Iowa, 17-9, on Saturday, snapping a two-game skid.

Alex Hornibrook had 197 yards passing for the Badgers (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten), who won for the fourth straight time in Iowa City.

Badgers try to keep division hopes alive at Iowa


IOWA CITY, Iowa — In just three weeks, Wisconsin might go from being the toast of the Big Ten West to, well, toast in the Big Ten West.

The 10th-ranked Badgers (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) earned the nation’s respect after close losses to Michigan and Ohio State, dropping just two spots in this week’s poll. And yet a loss on Saturday at unranked Iowa (5-2, 3-1) would put the Badgers three back of the Hawkeyes in the win column with just five games left.

No. 2 Ohio St. claws past No. 8 Wisconsin in OT


MADISON — J.T. Barrett escaped Wisconsin’s pressure and shook off a mistake.

Ohio State’s do-it-all quarterback proved his mettle after halftime in the toughest of road environments, accounting for three touchdowns and setting a school record in the process.

MADISON — Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt would like a unique birthday gift this year.

A win over Ohio State might be more cherished than any present.

A hot ticket for Peavy, Badgers


Beating LSU at Lambeau Field was nice and all, but there’s nothing like Ohio State coming to town.

“This is as big as it can get,” Wisconsin redshirt junior and 2013 Tremper graduate Jazz Peavy said. “This is something you dream of, being at games like this. A night game at Camp Randall against the No. 2 team in the country. I mean you can’t really ask for more. This is just a big stage for everybody. I’ve always had a mindset not to make anything bigger than what it really is, but it’s big.

No. 4 Michigan stifles No. 8 Wisconsin 14-7


ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Wilton Speight threw a tiebreaking, 46-yard touchdown pass to Amara Darboh midway through the fourth quarter and Jourdan Lewis had a spectacular, one-handed interception as No. 4 Michigan held on to beat No. 8 Wisconsin 14-7 on Saturday.

“I’ve seen Odell Beckham do that,” Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh said. “The most impressive thing about it was he jumped a little early.”

Badgers will face Michigan without Biegel


No. 8 Wisconsin will take on No. 4 Michigan Saturday without star linebacker Vince Biegel.

Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said Friday that Biegel had surgery on his right foot Thursday night. The senior will miss several weeks.

Badgers leave Spartans smartin’


EAST LANSING, Mich. — By the time Alex Hornibrook’s first start was over, there wasn’t much question about whether he could handle one of the toughest road tests in the Big Ten.

Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown, and 11th-ranked Wisconsin turned its early-season showdown with No. 8 Michigan State into a rout, beating the Spartans 30-6 on Saturday.

Badgers, Spartans in early Big Ten showdown


EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan State-Wisconsin rivalry was just getting good when the matchup disappeared from the Big Ten schedule for a bit.

In 2011, the Spartans beat the Badgers on a Hail Mary, but Wisconsin won a thrilling rematch in the Big Ten championship game. Michigan State beat the Badgers in overtime in 2012, but the teams haven’t faced each other since.

It was never about the jersey.

That, Carmen Gordon said Friday, she wanted to make clear.

Wisconsin averts disaster


MADISON — This is not the right time for No. 9 Wisconsin to have questions at quarterback, not with Big Ten play starting next Saturday.

But backup Alex Hornibrook may have put himself back into a competition with starter Bart Houston behind center after sparking the Badgers’ sluggish offense on Saturday.

Badgers look to fine-tune vs. Georgia St.


MADISON — Wisconsin would like to develop some passing options to complement its running game.

With Big Ten play looming, the ninth-ranked Badgers’ matchup Saturday against Georgia State at Camp Randall Stadium serves as the final nonconference tuneup for first-year starting quarterback Bart Houston and a receiving corps looking to provide balance on offense.

Badgers all ‘Jazz-ed’ up


MADISON (AP) — Tremper graduate Jazz Peavy finally broke into the scoring column for the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday.

Peavy, a redshirt junior wide receiver, scored the first two touchdowns of his Badgers career to help No. 10 Wisconsin rout Akron, 54-10, at Camp Randall Stadium.

Badgers aim to keep momentum vs. Akron


MADISON — For an encore to the upset victory over LSU, No. 10 Wisconsin will host Akron this afternoon.

This matchup doesn’t have quite the same zip as a showdown against an SEC power. But the Badgers have vowed to stay focused, and to build on their big win with Big Ten play looming in a few weeks.

Lambeau leap for Badgers


GREEN BAY — Rafael Gaglianone booted the 47-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. Wisconsin’s defense backed up their strong-legged kicker with a late-game interception.

Then LSU offensive lineman Josh Boutte delivered a devastating hit.

A meeting in Minny


And the answer is ... Melvin Gordon.

The Bradford graduate will go down in history as the first player ever to score a touchdown in U.S. Bank Stadium, which debuted Sunday with a preseason game in which the host Minnesota Vikings defeated the San Diego Chargers 23-10 in Minneapolis.
