It happened. Was it right? Of course not, but those responsible have admitted their mistake. The problem is, the Arizona State-Wisconsin score from 2013 will stand and there is nothing anyone can do about it. That said, Wisconsin must move on and do so quickly. On Saturday, the Badgers open up Big Ten play against Purdue at home in Madison. The Badgers will be favored in that game — as they should be. But they should not assume Purdue gives a damn about the circumstances revolving around their loss to Arizona State. Purdue is fresh off a game where they had Notre Dame looking for the door.

MADISON, Wis. -- Beau Allen stands 6-foot-3, 325 pounds and is considered, even by football standards, to be an exceptionally large human being. This girth has allowed him to excel this season in his role as a nose guard, which will demand he occupy double teams from some of the biggest, baddest offensive linemen in the country. Because of the position he plays, however, it can...

Gary Andersen: Badgers running backs strongest as duo

MADISON, Wis. -- There are no doubt fans that see the eye-popping yards-per-carry average from running back Melvin Gordon and think he deserves the majority of Wisconsin's rushing opportunities, regardless of teammate James White's success.
