Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor may not stay in the game long enough to pile up some big rushing yardage this week, but he is certainly making the most of his time on the field so far today in Madison. Taylor has scored three touchdowns as Wisconsin has established a 44-0 lead on Central Michigan at halftime.
Taylor rushed 13 times for 84 yards and two rushing touchdowns, and he added two catches for 21 yards and another touchdown as Wisconsin has been in firm control of the game form the start.
Wisconsin quarterback Jack Coan had a solid first half as well. Coan completed 18 of 22 pass attempts for 276 yards and a trio of touchdowns, including one thrown to Taylor. There really hasn’t been much to complain about for Wisconsin. The Badgers are without a turnover, have thrived on third down while doing an excellent job getting off the field when on defense in third down situations. Wisconsin has held Central Michigan to -13 rushing yards and just 25 total yards.
Wisconsin should be well on its way to a stress-free win heading into their bye week as they prepare for Michigan in two weeks. But first, 30 more minutes to play in Camp Randall.
