Wilson, Wisconsin Thrash NIU, 49-7

(AP) Russell Wilson threw for 347 yards and three scores, Montee Ball rushed for another two touchdowns and No. 7 Wisconsin piled up more than 600 yards of total offense Saturday in a 49-7 rout of Northern Illinois at Soldier Field. Ball finished with 91 yards on 18 carries, James White added 100 yards and another score, and Nick Toon had two touchdown catches for the Badgers (3-0), who have won 31 straight against non-conference opponents in the regular season. It was an unwelcome “homecoming” for Northern Illinois coach Dave Doeren, who spent the last five years in Madison as the defensive coordinator.
