The Badgers are 15-0 at home since Bielema took over for Barry Alvarez.

A crowd of 80,910 watched Wisconsin beat Akron on Saturday 38-17. That was the school's 33rd consecutive sellout. Oklahoma's 17-game home winning streak is the only one better among NCAA schools.

The last time Wisconsin lost at home was in November 2005 against Iowa.

Wisconsin owned the line of scrimmage, rolling up more than 400 rushing yards for the first time in six years with P.J. Hill powering for 210 yards and two touchdowns.

Sophomore Zach Brown ran for 87 yards and freshman John Clay tacked on 71 more.

The Badgers kept the ball on the ground for 63 of their 73 offensive plays.

The game wasn't close, but it was closer than it needed to be. Twice Wisconsin turned the ball over inside the Zips' five yard line.

Quarterback Allan Everidge didn't throw much, but he was precise when he did, hitting 7-10 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. Akron was held to a total of 297 yards.
