First Qtr Recap: Badger front seven steps up

MADISON, Wisc. - The Wolverine rushing attack has found no room in the first quarter, as Wisconsin's front seven has closed off the corners and clogged up the middle. So far, the best offense for Michigan has been the wide receiver screen pass, which they've used several times for minimal yardage.

The Badgers, meanwhile, have moved the ball with success. They took advantage of the game's only turnover so far, and were driving for a second score at the close of the quarter, thanks to a 34-yard completion to Travis Beckum. The Wolverine secondary has had no answer for Beckum and Paul Hubbard so far. The Badger rushing attack has not found the big play to the outside, but Lance Smith did appear to be heating up.

Michigan has gained 62 yards on 16 plays, while Wisconsin has 139 yards on 18.
