Two-way player Tanner McEvoy’s 32-yard touchdown run in the third quarter helped the Wisconsin Badgers pull away from a stubborn Troy University team 28-3 on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.
Two Wisconsin defenders, linebacker Leon Jacobs and defensive back Derrick Tindal, were ejected in the game for targeting.
The Badgers led just 14-3 at halftime.
Senior quarterback Joel Stave threw for one touchdown and passed for another. He finished 13-of-17 for 202 yards.
Dare Ogunbowale had Wisconsin’s other touchdown. The ground attack was improved, but still fell short of 200 yards.
Defensively, the Badgers continued to be stingy. For the second straight game, the Badgers failed to give up a touchdown.
The game was delayed after a heat detector near a pizza oven set off the fire alarm with about nine minutes left to play in the game.
The Badgers improved to 2-1 and will host Hawaii next Saturday night at Camp Randall.
