Chris Borland motivates, then sets tone as Badgers defense dominates Wildcats

MADISON, Wis. -- In many respects, Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland can be considered the Chuck Norris of his entire college football program. That is, someone whose legend becomes so great that fact and fiction blur. At least, what is fact can occasionally seem as though it's fiction.
