Wisconsin returner David Gilreath sustained a concussion and was taken off the field in an ambulance early in the third quarter after taking a hard hit while returning a punt against San Jose State.

The senior was hit almost immediately by Peyton Thompson. As Gilreath was being driven back, Dominique Hunsucker came in from behind, appearing to make incidental helmet-to-helmet contact.

Gilreath stayed down for about 10 minutes and didn’t appear to move, but Badgers coach Bret Bielema said Gilreath was talking and trying to get up after being knocked out for a little over a minute. Wisconsin beat San Jose State 27-14.

MISSING GREEN

Playing without suspended star receiver A.J. Green, Georgia lost 17-6 to South Carolina and was held without a touchdown for the first time in three years _ since the Bulldogs’ last loss to South Carolina in 2007. Green was penalized four games by the NCAA for selling a game jersey for $1,000.

MOVING ON UP

A day after Villanova announced it was giving serious consideration to making the jump from FCS to FBS and joining the Big East, the Wildcats pounded Lehigh 35-0. Chris Whitney threw for two touchdowns and Aaron Ball rushed for 102 yards and a score to lead Villanova (1-1), which last week nearly knocked off FBS team Temple.

16 AND COUNTING

Presbyterian lost its 16th straight game, getting blasted by Clemson 58-21. That followed a 53-13 loss to Wake Forest last week. Next up for the Blue Hose: No. 21 Auburn.

QUOTABLE

“I told the defense that they played their tails off. (The offense) got a good you-know-what chewing.” Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said after the Cornhuskers’ 38-17 victory against Idaho. The Huskers defense had five interceptions and seven sacks. The offense committed four turnovers.
