STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania (Ticker) -- It could be another long year in Happy Valley.
Freshman Anthony Davis ran for 200 yards and quarterback Brooks Bollinger passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Wisconsin defeated Penn State, 18-6, in the Big Ten Conference opener for both teams.
Penn State is off to an 0-2 start for the second straight season, the first time it has done that since 1964 and 1965. The Nittany Lions opened the season with a lopsided loss to Miami before last week's game with Virginia was called off in the wake of the terrorist attacks.
In the process, Joe Paterno remains with 322 wins, one behind Bear Bryant for the all-time record in Division I-A.
Davis carried 37 times for the Badgers (2-2, 0-1), who rolled up 320 yards on the ground against a pourous defense.
Bollinger carried 23 times for 112 yards and also completed seven-of-12 passes for 61 yards. He opened the scoring with a three-yard TD pass to Mike Anelli in the first quarter.
The Badgers increased their halftime lead to 12-0 on field goals of 30 and 21 yards bty Mike Allen.
Paterno tried Matt Senneca and Zack Mills at quarterback, and neither was effective. The only scoring for Penn State was a 50-yard TD pass from Senneca to Larry Johnsin in the third quarter.
The Nittany Lions have yet to score in the first half this season.
Bollinger capped the scoring with a three-yard run in the third quarter.
