GIF: Ref trips as Wisconsin's James White scampers by

BTN

The ref tripped over his own feet. James White did not.

After a somewhat sluggish first half, Wisconsin cleaned up its offense to start the third quarter. One of the highlights? A 51-yard rush by running back James White, who evaded one final UMass defender.

The sideline ref, however, was not so fortunate.

Falling refs, always funny. This one's especially great considering the timing of the whole thing -- just as the ref begins his tumble, White shakes the UMass defender and scampers by.

One more time:

Wisconsin's backfield, as expected, has ran all over UMass' defense. Both White and Gordon barely needed three quarters to eclipse 100 yards, and both seem destined to average above 10 yards per carry. Halfway through the third quarter, the Badgers had 300 total rushing yards.
