Joel Stave threw for 236 yards and three scores, and Wisconsin's dominating defense had three interceptions in the Badgers' 58-0 victory over Miami (Ohio) on Saturday to win Paul Chryst's home debut as head coach.

Rob Wheelwright had two touchdown catches for Wisconsin (1-1), and Dare Ogunbowale had 112 yards rushing and a touchdown in place injured starter Corey Clement.

He wasn't needed against the overmatched RedHawks (1-1).

Stave was 19 of 30 before leaving in the third quarter with Wisconsin leading 44-0.

Playing receiver and safety, Tanner McEvoy became the first Badger to record a catch and interception in the same game since 2003. McEvoy's 41-yard interception return set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Taiwan Deal for a 27-point lead with 6:32 left in the second quarter.

Miami played Drew Kummer and Billy Bahl at quarterback. The ineffective duo combined to go 13 of 34 for 160 yards.
