Here are the stories:

For the second game in a row, the Wisconsin defense shut down an opposing offense. It’s also the first time that’s happened since 1958. The Badgers defeated Tennessee Tech yesterday afternoon 48-0. Running back Melvin Gordon rushed for 140 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown run. James White rushed for 109 yards and freshman Corey Clement added 149 rushing yards, marking the second game in a row that three Wisconsin backs rushed over the century mark. Joel Stave was also impressive, throwing 24-of-29 for 219 yards and three touchdowns. The Badger’s defense allowed just 113 yards in total offense.

The Lady Badgers are 6-0 to start the volleyball season, winning the N-D-S-U classic yesterday. Junior Courtney Thomas was named the classic M-V-P, contributing to the Badger’s .275 hitting percentage in a win over the 17th-ranked Louisville Cardinals, holding them to just .087 in hitting percentage. The unbeaten record marks the best start since the 2010 season and it’s the first time the Badgers beat a ranked team since Penn State in 2011 (6th-ranked). Badgers are back home Friday and Saturday to host the InnTowner Invitational.

-----

Pitcher Johnny Hellweg allowed three runs on four hits in six innings of work, as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Chicago Cubs yesterday 5-3. Hellweg (1-3) says it felt good to contribute a win for the Brewers. Despite a sore knee, center fielder Carlos Gomez pinch-hit in the eighth inning and continued the rest of the game. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy hit an R-B-I triple in the ninth to seal the win.
