It is a slightly foggy day here at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wis. The temperature is currently 60 degrees and with this hazy weather, you can hardly see the top of the Capitol building.

The most interesting attire I have seen in the student section so far is a guy dressed in a giant banana suit in section P. Not only is he sporting the bright yellow wardrobe, he strategically placed a giant, old school red "W" across the chest of the suit to show off his Badger pride.

With about 15 minutes before kickoff, the band is working the crowd with its pregame ritual performance. Each home game, the band creates a formation that represents the Badgers and always caters to the opposing team's fans. Today, the band created an SJSU formation.

The Badgers return 10 starts on an offense that led the Big Ten in both scoring and total offense last year. UW's top six rusher, top two passers and seven of its top eight receivers all return from 2009.

Several Wisconsin players earned preseason honors, including John Clay, who earned his 3rd touchdown of the season in the opening drive today. Clay was on the preseason Walter Camp Award Watch List, Maxwell Award Watch List, Doak Walker Award W.L., Player All-American, 2nd-team All-American (Athlon, Consensus Draft SErvices), 2rd-team All-American (Sporting News), 1st-team All-Big Ten (Phil Steele, Athlon, Blue Ribbon)

Wisconsin, 7, SJSU 0, 6:50 left in 1st quarter: Freshman J.J. White just earned his first carry of the day, advancing the Badgers to the 16-yard line
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:20 Allison Metcalf
11:21
Brian Mason: 
The line opened another nice hole for White up the middle there and he drives the Badgers inside the 10
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:21 Brian Mason
11:21
Allison Metcalf: 
Junior John Clay and sophomore Montee Ball ran for two touchdowns each and combined with true freshman White help the Badgers rack up 261 rushing yards, while senior quarterback Scott Tolzien completed 15 of 20 passes for 197 yards against UNLV
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:21 Allison Metcalf
11:22
Brian Mason: 
White was oh-so-close to his first career TD there, but the ball was stripped and went out the side of the end zone ... that's a touchback and 1st down for SJSU
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:22 Brian Mason

Brian Mason: 
Disappointing end to the drive
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:22 Brian Mason
11:23
Brian Mason: 
He was lunging for the pylon and had the ball knocked loose just short of the goal line ... it then took an unfortunate bounce around the pylon and out of the end zone
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:23 Brian Mason

UW 7, SJSU 0, 5:17 left in 1st Q: White has definitely made his size present out there in the field, both against UNLV and UW. He definitely doesn't look like a true-freshman out there!

San Jose began their drive on the 20 yard line with an incomplete pass

A lot of people wanted to see more out of senior QB Scott Tolzien today and he's delivered so far ... 3-of-4 passing for 52 yards
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:25 Brian Mason
11:25
Brian Mason: 
Scott has hit three different receivers for catches of 15-plus yards ... would have been four if Gilreath could have held on to the pass on UW's first play from scrimmage

Last week we also saw a costly miscue (fumble) in the red zone. That's bad especially against the poor caliber of opponents we are facing.

Tolzien tried to hit Kendricks, but a big hit jarred the ball loose from Lance's grip and it hits the turf ... Tolzien has been on target with all five of his throws but only has three completions to show for it

Saturday September 11, 2010 11:37 Brian Mason

Brian Mason: 
Going back to the outside running, it's worked well already for Clay, Ball, White and now Gilreath. Speed has helped those backs, but the blocks have been there consistently.

11:39
Allison Metcalf: 
The Badgers have the advantage heading into the second quarter. This is just the second meeting between Wisconsin and SJSU. UW won the first one, 56-10, on Sept. 13, 1997 on the Spartan's home turf. This is SJSU's first trip to Camp Randall.

The Spartans hail from the Western Athletic Conference. The Badgers are 12-3 all-time against teams currently in that league. Last year, the Cardinal and White defeated WAC teams Fresno State and Hawaii.

Spartans got pressure on 3rd-and-long but Tolzien found Ball out in the flat. Play went for loss of 3, however. Nortman to punt.

Rough series for the offense deep in SJSU territory

Great kick by Nortman, though. Spartans will start at their own 29
Saturday September 11, 2010 11:57 Brian Mason

Brian Mason: 
The offensive stall didn't hurt the field-position battle as much as it could have thanks to the 53-yard punt by Nortman

UW 14, SJSU 0: Last week, Nortman punted four times for 156 yards, an average of 39.0 yards per kick

It was a great turnout! It always is. It's a very exciting event for freshmen to learn all of the cheers and get ready for their first fb game at Camp Randall

Nice job by Jones of looking in a pretty good pass from Rutley that moves SJSU into Badgers territory.
Saturday September 11, 2010 12:10 Brian Mason

UW had 2-on-1 coverage but Rutley placed the ball exactly where it needed to go

Every time the Badgers have shown an unconventional look on 3rd down, the Spartans have struggled. That includes a burned timeout and, now, a false start

Can you tell what the trainers are looking at with Gilreath?

We assume them to be handling him cautiously because of the potential for head injury in a helmet-to-helmet hit.
