Mercy. So, this is the second week in a row that Wisconsin shut out an opponent. Some are calling out the weak schedule. Still, to dominate like that is impressive so you gotta give credit where it’s due, right?
A week after opening Andersen’s tenure in Madison with a 45-0 drubbing of Massachusetts, the Badgers bounced back with an equally impressive victory over thoroughly overmatched Tennessee Tech. Wisconsin has back-to-back shutouts to open a season for the first time since holding Miami and Marquette scoreless in 1958.
Oh, so this has happened before. Let’s look at some details:
The Badgers tossed a shutout on defense and had three backs go over 100 yards for a second straight game — including 140 yards and a 37-yard score for Gordon — in a 48-0 rout Saturday of FCS school Tennessee Tech.
James White added 109 yards rushing on 22 carries, while freshman Corey Clement had 149 on 13 carries in the second half.
Joel Stave was 24 of 29 for 219 yards with three touchdowns and an interception. Defensive back Darius Hillary set the tone early by forcing the fumble recovered by Southward on the first play from scrimmage for the Badgers (2-0).
Well, I wonder how long this domination can continue.
