Still on run, but Badgers look to spice up offense

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Coach Gary Andersen is thinking about spicing up the Wisconsin offense this fall.

Running back Melvin Gordon remains the star attraction. Fans of Wisconsin's power-running game need not worry - things aren't changing that much in Madison.

But Andersen would like to give opposing defenses something more to think about given the attention expected to be heaped on 1,600-yard rusher Gordon. Wisconsin isn't going rogue and turning into a spread team, but Andersen says "dynamics" of the spread would be worked in as part into the offense.

Defenses contained the running game more down the stretch in 2013. At quarterback, incumbent Joel Stave and Tanner McEvoy are expected to compete for the starting job.
