Austin Peay (2-2) vs. No.11 Wisconsin (4-0)

First Half

First Quarter

7-0 Wisconsin

9 plays, 68 yards, 4:41 TOP, 10:12 left

Bradie Ewing 7-yard run (Philip Welch kick)

Key Play: Hard to pick a key play when Wisconsin marches right down the field and scores, but it was important for the Badgers to march right down the field. The drive had few hiccups and got pushed into scoring range by a 23-yard pass play to Lance Kendricks.

14-0 Wisconsin

5 plays, 57 yards, 2:25 TOP, 5:13 left

James White 18-yard run (Philip Welch kick)

Key Play: James White can finally forget about that fumble against San Jose State. On a sweep to the left, White used his speed to get around the corner and made a nifty cut back at the six-yard line, getting the ball over the goal line for his first collegiate touchdown.

Second Quarter

14-3 Wisconsin

11 plays, 53 yards, 5:49 TOP, 14:13 left

Stephen Stansell 51-yard FG

Key Play: Not an impressive drive for UW's secondary, as AP quarterback Jake Ryan went 4 of 5 for 48 yards to get the Governors into UW territory for the first time.

21-3 Wisconsin

3 plays, 74 yards, :56 TOP, 13:10 left

James White 66-yard run (Welch kick)

Key Play: This is why Wisconsin was so excited to have James White in the running back mix. On a toss play, White got to outside in a flash and simply out ran two tackle attempts as he sprinted down the left sideline.

28-3 Wisconsin

5 plays, 60 yards, 1:57 TOP, 10:08 left

Lance Kendricks 7-yard pass from Tolzien (Welch kick)

Key Play: Has Austin Peay watched film of the Wisconsin offense? With UW racking up the running yards, the Governors are forgetting about Lance Kendricks. After Tolzien hit a wide-open Kendricks over the middle for 17, Kendricks was wide open one play later in the flat, good enough for 23 yards to get UW in the red zone.

35-3 Wisconsin

6 plays, 48 yards, 2:47 TOP, 6:12 left

Bradie Ewing 3-yard pass from Tolzien (Welch kick)

Key Play: A great play-action fake from Tolzien froze the defense and Kendricks releasing drew three defenders, leaving Ewing releasing into the flat unchecked. You can't get an easier touchdown than that for Wisconsin.

42-3 Wisconsin

3 plays, 56 yards, 1:10 TOP, 3:13 left

John Clay 12-yard run (Welch kick)

Key Play: After all his teammates were giving into the end zone, John Clay was starting to feel left out. He got into the action with a couple Heisman-like runs, a bulldozing 16-yard run up the middle and a quick 12-yard touchdown run, bursting through the first line of defense and getting into the end zone untouched.

49-3 Wisconsin

6 plays, 60 yards, 1:02 TOP, :35 left

Jacob Pedersen 10-yard pass from Tolzien (Welch kick)

Key Play: A great throw by Tolzien and some athleticism from Pedersen put a punctuation on the first half for Wisconsin. Under pressure, Tolzien lofted a pass to the back of the end zone, putting it where only Pedersen could reach it. After an athletic jump and seeing the ball just clear the defender, the redshirt freshman had his first career touchdown.

Second Half

Third Quarter

56-3 Wisconsin

9 plays, 64 yards, 4:21 time of drive, 6:47 left

James White 11-yard touchdown run (Welch PAT)

Key Play: Look at Jon Budmayr! He handed the ball off superbly, never once looking nervous as the Badgers marched down the field. His five yard completion to Abbrederis really set the tone.

63-3 Wisconsin

8 plays, 77 yards, 4:03 time of drive, :35 left

James White with a 19-yard touchdown run (Welch PAT)

Key Play: White made a move, bounced to the outside, before shedding a tackle and diving into the end zone. The 19-yard scamper gives him four touchdowns on the day.

Fourth Quarter

70-3 Wisconsin

8 plays, 50 yards, 4:41 time of drive, 4:15 left

Montee Ball with a 10-yard touchdown run

Key Play: Ball takes a power toss and runs in untouched from the ten-yard line, giving all three running backs touchdowns on the day.
