MADISON, WI (WSAU) Even with a healthy Montee Ball, Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema says he’ll try to get running backs Melvin Gordon and James White more involved in Saturday’s game at Illinois. The senior Ball scored three touchdowns in last weekend’s 30-to-27 Badger loss at Nebraska. But he only averaged two-point-eight yards a carry – and Ball had all but three of Wisconsin’s 35 rushing attempts.

Gordon had two carries for five yards. White had one carry, and lost five yards. Bielema says there are a number of plays he’s considering for White and Gordon – and the coach said yesterday, quote, “We’re kind of trying to keep to task on that.”

Wisconsin and Illinois are both 0-and-1 in the Big Ten Leaders Division heading into Saturday’s contest at Champaign. Wisconsin is 3-and-2 overall, while the Illini is at 2-and-3.
