Wisconsin-ohio-state
(Eds: APNewsNow.) By GENARO C. ARMAS AP Sports Writer The Chris Borland fan club at No. 23 Wisconsin starts at the top. Barely eight months on the job, and first-year Badgers coach Gary Andersen can't help but gush about the senior. It's hard not to get excited about a playmaking linebacker whose 13 career forced fumbles are one short of tying the major college record shared by five players. For Andersen, there's no better player than Borland to help ease the transition at Wisconsin. The Badgers are switching to a 3-4 defense preferred by Andersen. Deception, miscommunication and forcing more turnovers are Andersen's goals. Borland fits right in. With 308 career tackles, he's also 144 stops from becoming the school's all-time leader. Wisconsin opens the season Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium against Massachusetts.

Andersen confident in true freshman Shelton starting

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen recalls his first game as a starting center at Ricks College with both fondness and a tinge of regret. "I couldn't talk for the first quarter at center, and that's not a good thing when you're like that," Andersen said. "I remember my first game playing a Division I football game, it was much of the same."...

Badgers' new 3-4 defensive look features beefed-up defensive ends

MADISON, Wis. -- The caloric intake for one of Chipotle's double-wrapped chicken burritos is roughly 1,150 calories -- give or take a few hundred depending on the amount of extra white rice crammed between the tortillas. For most, a regular trip to ingest such a culinary delight may sound like a gastrointestinal nightmare. For some members of Wisconsin's defensive line,...

UMass-Wisconsin Preview

Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen sees the competition for the quarterback job just like those for any other position. He's not going to make a big deal over who the 23rd-ranked Badgers settle on. No extra fuss, no fanfare. The plan is to make the pick for starter public between either Joel Stave or Curt Phillips when Wisconsin jogs on to the field to host Massachusetts in the...

Wisconsin finishes Canada trip 4-1

A 4-1 trip is not bad at all. After the first blip, against a team that knocked off both TCU and Towson along with taking Syracuse to overtime, Wisconsin settled down and overall had a nice trip. Everyone on the team got some decent minutes and Bo was able to see guys play in different situations. It would have been nice to win all five, but the experience is even better...
