After rocky start, Badgers make progress

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- After Wisconsin's rocky start, this counts as progress.

Sure, the Badgers needed a pair of touchdowns in the final 3:20 to secure a 37-26 victory over lowly UTEP on Saturday. The Miners' 26 points were the most allowed by Wisconsin this season, and they were four for four on fourth-down conversions -- including a pair on a 13-play, 75-yard scoring drive alive. There were more penalty woes, too.

But Wisconsin's offense finally showed signs of being the powerhouse everyone expected, with James White and Melvin Gordon not missing a beat after Heisman Trophy finalist Montee Ball suffered an apparent concussion. Better yet, the Badgers (3-1) appear to have found themselves a quarterback in redshirt freshman Joel Stave.
