Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson one-upped Andrew Luck, padding his Heisman resume with a touchdown catch and No. 1 LSU crushed another SEC rival playing with a backup quarterback.
Wilson led No. 4 Wisconsin to a routine 59-7 victory Saturday against Indiana, catching a 25-yard touchdown pass from Montee Ball in the process.
A couple weeks ago, Stanford used Luck as a receiver and the star quarterback made a spectacular one-handed catch near the sideline. But it wasn’t a touchdown like Wilson’s in Madison.
In Knoxville, Tenn., LSU remained unbeaten with its seventh straight double-digit victory.
LSU beat Tennessee 38-7 with backup quarterback Matt Simms playing for injured Vols starter Tyler Bray.
Last week LSU romped Florida 41-11 with the Gators using a freshman backup for the injured John Brantley.
No. 2 Alabama was playing later at Mississippi and No. 3 Oklahoma was at Kansas.
The BCS standings debut Sunday and LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma figured to be in the top three spots if they all won Saturday.
