Badgers offense rolls, defense halts Troy 28-3


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two-way player Tanner McEvoy had one of No. 24 Wisconsin's three touchdown runs, and the Badgers wore down Troy for a 28-3 win Saturday.
   An odd game featured two Badgers defenders ejected for targeting, and a brief fourth-quarter delay for an errant fire alarm.
   The defense restored order by holding Troy scoreless in the second half.
   Dare Ogunbowale and quarterback Joel Stave also ran for scores.
   The Big Ten power (2-1) led by 11 at the half over Troy (1-2), from the Sun Belt Conference, before capitalizing on quarterback Brandon Silvers' fumble on a sack by Joe Schobert on the opening drive of the second half.
   Seven plays later, McEvoy, who plays receiver and safety, took a direct snap on offense and ran right 32 yards for a score and a 21-3 lead with 7:16 left in the third quarter.
