Badger Bits: Robinson gets a record, Wisconsin gets the win

Somehow, Mondays seem easier when you know you only have to go to school for two days.

Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writes that the Badgers proved they were the better team on Saturday after a resounding 48-28 win over Michigan. The Badgers ran the ball 31 straight times at one point during the game, and racked up 357 yards on the ground. Michigan's quarterback Denard Robinson rushed for 121 yards and set a NCAA record for rushing yards by a quarterback, but it just wasn't enough to beat the Badgers.

The Badgers may have also proved to themselves that they are better than the team that lost to Michigan State back in September. Since the loss in East Lansing, the Badgers have outscored their opponents by a margin or 268-132, barely doubling their opponent's score on average.

More Badger Bits after the jump!
