    MADISON, Wis. Patrick Peterson Jersey . -- After Melvin Gordon fumbled on his first carry, teammate Corey Clement gave him a fist bump on the sideline and told his fellow Wisconsin running back to shake off the mistake. It turned out to be the start of record-setting day for the 19th-ranked Badgers. Gordon rushed for career highs of 253 yards and five touchdowns, and Wisconsin ran for a Big Ten-record 644 yards to trample Bowling Green in a 68-17 victory Saturday. Gordon had 179 yards and four scores by halftime alone before dashing for a 69-yard touchdown on his first carry of the second half. He silenced any doubters worried about his 38-yard outing the previous game. "I was motivated. I heard a lot of people doubting me saying I cant do this, I cant do that," he said. "That definitely motivated me to get out there and do what I needed to do." The junior tailback brushed aside a question about whether hes back in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy. The Badgers, though, put an emphatic end to talk about their running game being off track after getting slowed two weeks ago by lower division Western Illinois. "The unselfishness of Melvin Gordon ... as weve gone through the first part of the season has been incredible. Im so proud of the way hes handled it. And today was his day," coach Gary Andersen said. The Badgers (2-1) forced turnovers on back-to-back possessions by the Falcons (2-2) in the first half to break open a close game. Gordon capitalized each time with scores before closing the half with a 21-yard touchdown run for the highlight reel. On that play, Gordon broke two tackles, sidestepped another Falcon and outraced yet another defender into the front corner of the end zone to make it 41-10 at halftime. And to think Gordons day started with a fumble on his first carry -- the first of his career after 322 attempts. Clement started the next series. When asked, Andersen said he gave no thought to sitting Gordon. On the sideline before the drive, Clement offered words of encouragement. "I really just told him to keep his head up. I just gave him a fist-pound, told him we still had a whole game left to play. Dont let that weigh on you," Clement said. The only drama left in the second half was whether Gordon would eclipse the schools single-game rushing record of 339 set by Ron Dayne in 1996. But the juniors day ended after his 13th carry with about 12 minutes to go in the third quarter. "Theres a shiftiness about him," Bowling Green coach Dino Babers said. "He has breakaway speed. I saw two or three stiff arms, like hes stiff-arming kids like he was playing in a Pop Warner game." Clement finished with 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 16 carries, while quarterback Tanner McEvoy had 158 yards rushing on 11 attempts before departing late in the third quarter with Wisconsin leading by 52. Among the marks set or tied by Wisconsin: --The team rushing total was the most in the Big Tens modern era, dating back to 1946. --Gordon became the sixth Badger to score five touchdowns in a game, and the first since P.J. Hill in 2007. --Gordons 19.5 yards per carry set a record for a Badger with at least 10 attempts. Fresh off a bye week, the Badgers put together a dominating, all-around performance to squash Bowling Greens hopes for a second straight victory against a Big Ten team. The Falcons beat Indiana last week behind a fast-paced offence that ran a dizzying 113 plays. Two Wisconsin fumbles in the first half and terrific play by Bowling Green receivers had the visitors dreaming briefly about an upset. A 28-yard field goal by Tyler Tate cut Wisconsins lead to 14-10 with 1:01 left in the first quarter. Bowling Green had Wisconsin defenders on their heels again driving to the 8 early in the second quarter to answer a Wisconsin touchdown. But James Knapkes third-down pass was tipped and intercepted in the end zone by Lubern Figaro, who returned it 43 yards. The Badgers were off to the races from there. "We could have tackled a lot better. Im not going to say that would change everything in the game because Wisconsin is a good football team. But I think our lack of tackling did not help us at all," Bowling Green linebacker Gabe Martin said. Fred Coppet had a 35-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for Bowling Green.

Lynchs attorney, Ivan Golde, told The Associated Press on Thursday of the plea deal that was reached with the Alameda County District Attorney Office. The plea will be formally entered in court in Oakland, Calif.NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Titans squandered a golden opportunity to turn up the heat on the Indianapolis Colts in the race for the AFC South crown. Mike Munchaks club will get another chance starting Thursday in Music City when the two clubs meet in the first of two matchups over the next three weeks. The sequel is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 1 at Indianapolis. The 6-3 Colts currently hold a two-game edge over Tennessee in the division and if the Titans are going to make a move they will have to do it knowing that starting quarterback Jake Locker is lost for the season due to a Lisfranc injury. Locker suffered the problematic injury in his right foot during Sundays 29-27 loss to the previously winless Jaguars after taking a hard hit during the second quarter. "I dont know exactly how it happened, but when I got up from that run I could feel it," Locker said. "Its tough. You want to be on the football field with your teammates." The oft-injured Locker had thrown for 1,256 yards and eight touchdowns this season while completing 60.7 percent of his passes. He also ran for 155 yards with a pair of scores despite missing two games in October with a hip injury suffered in a Sept. 29 win over the Jets. Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick took over at quarterback against the Jags and completed 22-of-33 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns. The veteran has thrown 96 touchdowns in his career, and is expected to start for Tennessee for the remainder of the season with the unproven Rusty Smith backing him up. "Were just concentrating on these seven weeks," Munchak said. "Thats all were concerned about. Next year is next year. Right now we just got to go forward and try to win a game." Sloppy play cost the Titans against Jacksonville in a setback tight end Delanie Walker called "disgusting." Tennessee was unable to overcome four turnovers, including two by Locker before he left. Although they fared better than the Jaguars in total yards (362 to 214), first downs (19 to 13) and third down conversions (56 percent to 25 percent), the Titans lost three fumbles and threw an interception, leading to 17 of the Jaguars points. Jacksonville also scored two points on a safety. Chris Johnson fumbled on Tennessees first play from scrimmage when Jags LB Paul Posluszny stripped him and as he hit the ground and recovered the miscue, leading to a Maurice Jones-Drew 6-yard touchdown run. Jermaine Gresham Jersey. Locker was also intercepted and fumbled as the Titans lost for the fourth time in five games. "The roles were reversed. We looked like an 0-8 team. We deserved to lose," said Titans safety Bernard Pollard. "To lose to a team like this, the way we did, we had countless self-inflicted wounds," added linebacker Colin McCarthy. Indianapolis hardly comes in burgeoning with confidence either after St. Louis rookie Tavon Austin scorched the club with three long TDs last Sunday in an emphatic 38-8 Rams win. The dynamic Austin, who came into Sundays game with just two touchdowns, returned a punt 98 yards for a score and caught TD passes of 57 and 81 yards. The rookie wide receiver became the third player in NFL history with three touchdowns of 55 yards or longer in a single game, joining Cliff Battles and Chris Johnson. "I knew the day was going to come," Austin said. "It was just me being patient and me being true to myself and to keep working. Im just glad that I had an opportunity." Andrew Luck connected on 29-of-47 passes for a career-high 353 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions for the Colts, who maintained that two-game gap over the Titans despite their worst performance of the season. Donald Brown caught five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown for Indianapolis, which suffered its biggest home defeat since losing 31-0 to Chargers in 1993. "Certainly were not going to bury our head in the sand on this past ball game," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. "Well address the issues like we always address them. We know there are things that need to be fixed and well go to work on fixing those things." The Colts have won three consecutive games against the Titans and eight of the last nine in the series, which marks its 38th all-time installment this week. The last time the Titans, who are 14-23 all-time versus Indy, got the better of the Colts was Oct. 30, 2011 at LP Field (27-10).
