Wisconsin Vs. Northern Illinois Final Score: Badgers Blow Out Huskies, 49-7, In Latest Barrage

Another week, another blowout for Russell Wilson and the Wisconsin Badgers. This time, it was Northern Illinois getting clocked, a 49-7 stomping at Soldier Field that saw Northern Illinois fail to score for almost the final 47 minutes of the game.

The Badgers piled up 623 yards on the day, keyed as always by Wilson. The superstar transfer quarterback was 23-of-32 passing for 347 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He rushed for 39 yards on seven carries. And Montee Ball and James White had 91 rushing yards each and three touchdowns between them. None of the eight receivers Wilson hit had more than 80 yards, which gives you an idea of how well he spreads the ball around.

NIU, for its part, could only manage 236 yards. The ground game was largely shut down, with the Huskies rushing for just 63 yards. The longest run of the day was for 15 yards. Chandler Harnish was 15-of-24 passing for 165 yards.

Wisconsin's next opponent is South Dakota. It seems unlikely that the Coyotes will be the one to stop the Badgers onslaught.

Wisconsin Vs. NIU Score: Russell Wilson Yet To Cool Down, Badgers Up

All Russell Wilson everything continues. The Wisconsin Badgers are leading 14-7 early in their first real challenge of the season, with Wilson throwing a pair of touchdowns to Nick Toon against the Northern Illinois Huskies. In eight attempts, Wilson has missed just once, and has already thrown for 127 yards a minute into the second quarter.

Oh, and he's the game's leading rusher, with 25 yards. Jared Abbrederis is Wisconsin's leading receiver after securing a 37-yard grab.

NIU quarterback Chandler Harnish is putting up a fight, however, going 5-of-8 for 70 yards so far. Perez Ashford has been good for 46 of those yards. 

Through two games and one quarter, Wilson has thrown for 571 yards and rushed for 98. That might not sound like a whole lot, but with as good as the rest of Wisconsin's team already was, it certainly appears to have provided a jump to another level.
