MADISON (TSN-WSAU)  Melvin Gordon and James White combined for 286 yards and two scores, as 23rd-ranked Wisconsin whipped Massachusetts 45-0, in the first-ever meeting between the programs at Camp Randall Stadium.

Jared Abbrederis caught a pair of Joel Stave touchdowns en route to 122 yards for the Badgers (1-0), who finished 8-6 in 2012 with a loss in the Rose Bowl to Stanford.

Stave finished 9-of-17 for 197 yards and added a rushing score as Gary Andersen picked up an easy win in his coaching debut for the Big Ten stalwart.

Mike Wegzyn was just 9-of-23 for 72 yards and one interception for the Minutemen (0-1), who are looking to improve upon a 1-11 record in the school's first season in the FBS.

A.J. Doyle finished the contest under center going 5-of-7 for 39 yards, while Stacey Bedell posted 70 yards on 20 carries in defeat.

The Badgers host Tennessee Tech next week at Camp Randall Stadium.
