Badgers defense 'overwhelming'

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Avoiding turnovers has been a specialty in Troy quarterback Brandon Silvers' short but impressive career. The sophomore hasn't thrown an interception since Oct. 18, 2014, spanning 29 straight quarters.
   The streak will be even more remarkable if Silvers can keep it going on Saturday on the road against No. 24 Wisconsin and its opportunistic defense. The Trojans (1-1) will need a Herculean effort to pull off an upset of the Big Ten's Badgers (1-1).
   Sure, Wisconsin had noticeable hiccups against Alabama in the season opener and Ohio State in last season's Big Ten title game, Troy coach Neal Brown said, "but if you look at their stats, they're a little overwhelming."
   A dominating defensive performance helped Wisconsin beat Miami (Ohio) 58-0 in its home opener last weekend.
