Badgers run over IU

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - James White rushed for a career-high 205 yards and Melvin Gordon added 146 as No. 17 Wisconsin beat Indiana 51-3 on Saturday.
   
The Badgers (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) came in expecting a big game on the ground against the conference's 10th-ranked rushing defense with the Hoosiers (4-6, 2-4) giving up an average of more than 217 yards a game.
   
Wisconsin topped that just minutes into the second quarter, had 323 yards rushing at the half and finished with 554.
   
Indiana's high-flying offense, meanwhile, was nowhere to be found. Second in the conference at 527 yards a game, the Hoosiers were held to just 224 yards. Indiana had been held scoreless in just three quarters the entire season, but matched that Saturday. Indiana also snapped a school record of 10 straight games with at least 28 points.
