No. 21 Wisconsin shuts down Tennessee Tech 48-0Submitted: 09/07/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Melvin Gordon ran for 140 yards and a score, and No. 21 Wisconsin's overpowering defense got its second straight shutout in a 48-0 win over FCS school Tennessee Tech on Saturday

Joel Stave was 24 of 28 for 219 yards and three touchdowns, while defensive back Darius Hillary set the tone early by forcing a fumble that set up a score for the Badgers (2-0).

The early-season tuneup went about as well as could be expected for first-year coach Gary Andersen, who's breaking in a new 3-4 defense in Madison.

Wisconsin had no problems against the Golden Eagles (1-1), whose spread offense got outmuscled by the bigger Badgers. Tennessee Tech coach Watson Brown could have used a few players from younger brother Mack Brown's team at Texas.

The brightest spot for Tennessee Tech may have been punter Chad Zinchini, who had a career-best 70-yard boot in the third quarter.
