White has 3 TDs, No. 21 Badgers ground BYU 27-17
WISCONSIN 27, BYU 17

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Chris Borland tried to do a midair split
while celebrating a sack with his teammates.

He'd never win a gymnastics title, but among linebackers there
are few - if any - better than Wisconsin's star senior.

James White ran for two touchdowns and caught a pass for another
score, Borland led the defense in his return from an injured
hamstring, and the 21st-ranked Badgers stalled BYU's fast-paced
offense in a 27-17 victory Saturday.

"He flies around there, he smacked some guys pretty good today,"
coach Gary Andersen said about Borland. "There is just a little
bit extra when Chris is out there on the field as far as a
leadership."

Borland finished with 13 tackles and two sacks, celebrating his
second one with the Camp Randall bounce that offered emphatic
proof that he wasn't bothered by the injury that had sidelined
him a week earlier.

Michael Caputo added 12 tackles, helping with the team effort
that contained BYU dual-threat quarterback Taysom Hill to 207
yards passing and 53 on the ground - 97 below his season average
for total offense.

A team that had averaged more than 32 points and 511 yards in
total offense hit a big red speed bump in Madison, held to 370
yards.

"Wisconsin statistically and rightly so was good on defense,"
BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall said.

Andersen thought it was the best "team victory" of the season,
pleased with how special teams and the offense complemented the
defense, and vice versa. Maybe this will be the game that gets
the Badgers (7-2) more national respect.

White finished with 147 yards rushing on 23 carries to go with
six catches for 47 yards receiving. He's scored five touchdowns
in Wisconsin's last two games.

The senior had been overshadowed much of the season by fellow
running back Melvin Gordon, the sophomore who can turn a handoff
into a touchdown at any time.

White's pretty good, too. He ran in from 4 on Wisconsin's first
drive, and bookended the first half with a score on a 5-yard
touchdown pass from Joel Stave for a 17-3 lead.

"I just heard the crowd yelling and it sounded like Joel was
scrambling," White said. "And right when I turned around, the
ball was coming to me, so it just so happened to work out."

White locked up the win with his third score on a 14-yard run
with 13:51 left in the game for a decisive 27-10 lead, ending
the play with another rendition of what's become a familiar
touchdown two-step with Gordon.

"You thought, OK, it's third-and-2, looks like he got the first
down and the next time you look up, he's in the end zone doing
that little dance they do," Andersen deadpanned. "I love that
dance."

Gordon finished with 86 yards rushing on 19 carries.

"They're physical and we knew that going in," Mendenhall said.
"It's one thing to talk about it. It's another thing to line up
and play against it."

Kyle Van Noy went step-for-step with Borland in a matchup of
star linebackers with eight tackles and an interception for BYU
(6-3). Hill threw two touchdown passes to Cody Hoffman, but was
otherwise held in check by Wisconsin pressure.

But for all the talk during the week about BYU's up-tempo
offense, it was Wisconsin setting the tone. As usual, the
even-keeled Andersen had his team well prepared.

"The pace was a non-factor, and that was huge for us," he said.
"There wasn't confusion, there wasn't guys running around and
looking to see what was going to happen, where we were going.

Nearly half of BYU's total yardage, 174, came in the fourth
quarter during a desperate attempt to mount a comeback against
Wisconsin's safe defense. Otherwise the Badgers turned up the
pressure, and made it a point to keep paying attention to Hill,
who was 19 for 41 passing.

Pressure up the middle led to Hill's interception in the first
quarter, a floater easily picked off by safety Tanner McEvoy.

"We really controlled the game for the majority of it," Borland
said. "We contained the quarterback, which was huge."

BYU's offensive highlight came after Hoffman's tough catch on an
accurate throw from Hill, leaping over safety Dezmen Southward
and staying inbounds along the left sideline for the 34-yard
score that cut it to 20-10 with 9:04 left.

Hoffman finished with seven receptions for 113 yards. He was the
active FBS leader in career receiving touchdowns, entering the
night with 31.
