On Wisconsin's first play from scrimmage, James White ran for a 93-yard touchdown.

That has been indicative of this game, as IU hasn't been able to get on track all day on offense or defense. Wisconsin leads 27-0 at half.

The IU offense has struggled mightily. Sophomore quarterback Nate Sudfeld threw an interception on the first possession which set up the 93-yard White run.

Then, a Stephen Houston fumble gave the Badgers great field position, inside the Hoosier red zone. Wisconsin subsequently went up 14-0 without throwing a pass.

The quarterback carousal has continued for the IU offense. Sudfeld started the game, sophomore Tre Roberson came in for relief and then Sudfeld came back in.

So far, the IU quarterbacks are a combined 7-16 for 51 yards. Which is more yards then Wisconsin's Joel Stave, who has thrown for just 33 yards. However, the running game has been dominant for the Badgers.

The IU defense has given up 323 yards rushing, while IU's offense has just mustered 84 total yards of offense during the half.

Wisconsin will receive the ball to start the second half.
