COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller threw for four touchdowns  returning from injury in a 31-24 win over Wisconsin last night in front of 105,000 at Ohio Stadium.


Badgers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis caught 10 passes for a career-high 207 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown from Joel Stave in the first quarter. For the first time this season, the running game struggled for the Badgers – Melvin Gordon was held to 74 yards on 15 carries before leaving with an apparent leg injury at the end of the third quarter. Head coach Gary Andersen says Gordon should be ok. Mistakes also hurt the Badgers, accruing 8 penalties for 54 yards. Ohio State remains undefeated at 5-0, Wisconsin drops to 3-2 overall, 1-1 in the Big Ten.


Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt drove home an RBI in the tenth inning, sealing a 4-2 win over the New York Mets yesterday. Pitcher Jimmy Nelson picked up the win, allowing one hit and a run in five innings of work. The Brewers look to close the season out on a four-game win streak this afternoon, first pitch at 12:10 p.m..


Wisconsin native Matt Kenseth looks to snag his third-straight Sprint Cup Chase race at Dover this afternoon. Kenseth ran a solid preliminary run, starting second behind Dale Earnhardt Jr. (161.805 mph). The Cambridge driver has a 14-point lead over Kyle Busch and an 18 point lead over Jimmie Johnson in the standings.
