The Wisconsin defense will try to be more disciplined in the passing lanes, when they face Purdue Saturday in Madison.

Defensive end J.J. Watt said the Badgers will be ready for anything that Purdue quarterback Joey Elliott might dish up. Elliot is one of the Big Ten's more active quarterbacks outside the pocket.

And he's the Boilermakers' number-two rusher with 220 yards and three touchdowns.

Watt says Elliot has a good knack for where to run and he's quick to spot openings.

But if the Badger defenders stay in their pass rushing lanes and keep him contained, Watt says they should be OK.

Purdue tries to get the ball out quickly. They've only given up 11 sacks this year.
