Badgers go up 3-0, but it could be worse

PASADENA, Calif. -- Wisconsin running back Montee Ball busted up the middle for 40 yards on the first play from scrimmage to the TCU 28-yard line.

But seven plays and 15 yards later, the Horned Frogs forced a 30-yard field goal as Wisconsin settled for a 3-0 lead at the 10:39 mark of the first quarter.

The Frogs won the coin toss and opted to put its No. 1 defense on the field first. It didn't start off well, but the Frogs recovered and will not see what senior quarterback Andy Dalton and Co. can do.
