The Question

Would UW play down to its overmatched Bowl Championship Subdivision opponent?

The Answer

No. En route to a school record for points in a modern-era game, the Badgers drew one penalty, didn't have a turnover and were 9-for-9 in the red zone.

The Unforgettable

Tailback James White topped 100 yards rushing for the first time in his career (145) and joined 1999 Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne as the only true freshmen to score four touchdowns in a game.

The Performance

The workload for Bucky Badger, who does a push-up for every point scored, was such that two students were needed to handle the 385 push-ups.

The Stat of the Game

UW rolled up 618 yards of total offense, the sixth-most in school history and the 11th time it surpassed 600 yards in a game.

That Says it All

"A lot of times, games like this, guys kind of get complacent. But I thought ... we maximized our opportunities and guys came out ready to play and just embraced the opportunity."

-- Quarterback Scott Tolzien

The Postscript

The Governors finished 2-9 overall, 1-7 in the Ohio Valley Conference.
