A quick look at the 13th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers' 49-11 victory over the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten showdown Saturday night at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich. 

GAME BALL

Scott Nelson: The UW safety set the tone with an interception on Michigan’s first play from scrimmage, setting up the Badgers’ first score. Nelson also had a tackle for loss.

THUMBS UP

Jalen Berger: What a debut for the UW freshman tailback. The New Jersey native led the Badgers with 87 rushing yards and scored his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter.

THUMBS DOWN

Danny Davis: The senior wider receiver dropped two passes on what should have been relatively easy catches. Davis redeemed himself with 65 rushing yards and a score.

BY THE NUMBERS

105 — rushing yards for UW wide receivers.

129-1 — UW’s edge in total yardage in the first quarter.

28-0 — UW’s halftime lead, the exact same advantage the Badgers held at the break last season vs. the Wolverines.
