MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin running back John Clay often gets called in as a peacemaker when the sniping gets too intense between left tackle Gabe Carimi and left guard John Moffitt.
Carimi and Moffitt, both seniors, have played together so long for the seventh-ranked Badgers (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) that they've got bickering down to a fine science.
They're also part of the reason why Wisconsin's running attack is always in sync come Saturday. The Badgers resumes their schedule at Purdue (4-4, 2-2) this week following a bye.
Wisconsin likes to run all directions, but when Clay or freshman James White need a crucial yard, the Badgers usually look left.
That's where Carimi and Moffitt are opening the gaps -- even when the defense knows what's coming.
