A quick look at the 8th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers' 48-0 win over the Kent State Golden Flashes on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

GAME BALL

Jonathan Taylor: Taylor’s body of work will stand in UW and NCAA record books for years to come, so any time he accomplishes something for the first time, it’s significant. His five touchdowns were a career-high, and the threat of him getting the ball on a hand-off opened up easy play-action passes for Jack Coan.

THUMBS UP

Joe Rudolph: UW’s offensive coordinator didn’t need to do anything fancy, just let his offensive line and Taylor go to work. He also got his second unit a good deal of work in the second half.
