Wisconsin offense takes control in 2nd half

That's the type of offense we've been waiting for from Wisconsin.

After seeing its lead dwindle to five points, the Badgers' offense steamrolled Minnesota with play-action passes by Scott Tolzien and the perfect power-speed mix of John Clay and James White. Three unanswered touchdowns have the Badgers in position to retain Paul Bunyan's Axe.

Wisconsin has all of the tools to be an exceptional offense: great running backs, an experienced quarterback, a veteran offensive line, an exceptional tight end in Lance Kendricks, decent receivers. But aside from a Week 4 scrimmage against Austin Peay, the Badgers haven't put it all together.

Wisconsin is the type of team that should wear down its opponents in the second half, and the Badgers are doing just that today and lead 35-16 midway through the fourth quarter. It's a good sign before No. 2 Ohio State visits next week.
