MADISON, Wis. -- Camp Randall Stadium is shaking again, thanks to the House of Pain hit "Jump Around." But Penn State has sent the real tremors through Wisconsin and the rest of the Big Ten.
The Nittany Lions have validated themselves as the best team in the Big Ten and one of the best in the country with another dominating performance. After defense and special teams sparked a 24-7 halftime lead, Daryll Clark raised his play in the third quarter, racking up 175 passing yards.
The downfield passes have been there all game, and Clark is finally converting in a big way. Clark somehow found James McDonald after being flushed out of the pocket and then hit a wide-open Deon Butler for a 44-yard touchdown.
Wisconsin fans finally got something to cheer about when backup quarterback Dustin Sherer replaced the struggling Allan Evridge at the end of the quarter. Sherer completed two passes and led the Badgers into Penn State before throwing an interception to Lydell Sargeant, who picked off his second pass of the quarter. The Badgers could have a quarterback controversy brewing, but they need something to change on offense in a hurry.
