The defensive struggle everyone expected? Kevin Steele’s unit delivered, but Gus Malzahn had other ideas.
The Badgers (3-0, 1-0 Big Ten) jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead and extended that cushion to 35-0 in the third quarter before closing out the Wolverines 35-14 in their Big Ten Conference opener Saturday at Camp Randall.

TUSCALOOSA — Alabama’s quick-strike offense was once again running at peak efficiency Saturday and even worked in some second-half success on the ground to roll over Southern Mississippi 49-7 at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Gene Stallings used to say it, and no one argued the point: For every freshman you start, add a loss or two for the season.

A big game Saturday against a fast and athletic Michigan defense would boost Jonathan Taylor's Heisman Trophy stock considerably.
"It's going to take Scott Frost until maybe his fifth recruiting class for him to say, 'I not only have enough guys who can really play, but I also have enough guys who can back them up,'" Millen said of the second-year Nebraska head coach. "It'll take him awhile to get the kind of depth you're looking for. There's just not enough bullets in the gun right now."
The senior linebacker from Brown Deer, who almost gave up football in high school, has become a talented pass-rusher and team leader for UW.
On Nebraska’s first offensive drive of the third quarter last week against Northern Illinois, coach Scott Frost found himself with just the kind of decision that will take your temperature.

BOISE — It had to be a bit suspenseful. It was Air Force, of course.
Texas A&M right tackle Carson Green knew all about tradition after playing his high school football at Southlake Carroll where they “Protect the Tradition.” Now in his third season in Aggieland, the 6-foot-6, 315-pound “Maroon Goon” is continuing to take in a new Aggie tradition one day at a time, including game days as a key member of the A&M offensive line. Green started all 13 games last season and the first three this season.

Pregame analysis of Alabama's home game against Southern Mississippi:
39.1 Wyoming officially has the worst completion percentage in the Football Bowl Subdivison. After Sean Chambers completed just 4 of his 12 pass attempts against Idaho, he’s completing passes at just a 39.1-percent clip. Chambers has yet to complete at least half of his passes through the first three games. The Cowboys are averaging a Mountain West-worst 81.7 passing yards per game, and things won’t get any easier against a Tulsa defense that’s allowing just 199 yards a game through the air.
Nebraska head coach Scott Frost this week told the Journal Star he wants media to ask him about certain play-calls if they disagree or don't understand his decisions. He says he welcomes those interactions, especially if they lead to increased understanding.
