Clement runs for 3 scores in return, Badgers beat Rutgers

Posted: Updated:

Corey Clement ran for three scores and 115 yards in his first game in eight weeks, powering Wisconsin to a 48-10 victory on Saturday over Rutgers.

Clement had 11 carries, including a 21-yard scamper to the end zone after the junior burst through a narrow hole on the left side of the line for a 24-3 lead with 3:30 left in the second quarter.

It was a Halloween to remember for Clement following his eagerly-anticipated return from sports hernia surgery.

The Badgers (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten) overwhelmed the Scarlet Knights (3-5, 1-4) in their first trip to Madison.

Under constant pressure, quarterback Chris Laviano was just 4 of 14 for 31 yards with an interception. The offense mustered a season-low 165 yards.

Rutgers' only touchdown came when freshman Blessaun Austin intercepted a poor pass by Wisconsin's Joel Stave and returned it 50 yards for a score in the third quarter.
