No. 24 Wisconsin tramples Purdue 41-10

Posted:

MADISON (AP) -- Melvin Gordon ran for three touchdowns, James White added 145 yards and a 70-yard score, and No. 24 Wisconsin opened Big Ten play with a 41-10 win Saturday over Purdue.

Gordon scored from 5 and 27 yards in the first half before capping the opening drive of the second with a 15-yard touchdown run for the Badgers (3-1, 1-0).

Nose guard Warren Herring had a sack, and Chris Borland added six tackles to lead an active defense.

Wisconsin moved on nicely from last week's stunning 32-30 loss to Arizona State, after officials mishandled the final seconds to deprive the Badgers of a game-winning field-goal try.
 
No late worries this week.

Quarterback Rob Henry's 22-yard touchdown run provided one of the few highlights on the day for the Boilermakers (1-3, 0-1).
