MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave (STAH'-vee) is off to a modest start for the 23rd-ranked Badgers
Running backs Melvin Gordon, James White and Corey Clement have eased some of the offense's burden, but Stave knows the passing game has to be better starting this weekend on the road against No. 4 Ohio State.
Wisconsin (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) is third in the nation with 349.8 rushing yards through its first four games. The passing game has been a different story. Wisconsin ranks 90th in passing offense (198.0 per game) and Stave has failed to throw for more than 220 yards in any of his four starts.
