Despite a weather delay at the start, the Wisconsin Badgers kicked off their season with a 49-0 rout of the South Florida Bulls at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Friday night.

Jonathan Taylor capped off the 77-yard scoring march with a 37-yard touchdown run.

He added two receptions for 48 yards. [Read more…]
