MADISON, Wis. --- John Clay ran for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 11 Wisconsin beat San Jose State 27-14 on Saturday in a game overshadowed by the sight of teammate David Gilreath taken off the field on a stretcher.

It was Clay's eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game as the Badgers won their 15th home opener in a row and improved to 13-0 in nonconference regular-season games under coach Bret Bielema.

Gilreath took a hard hit near the head during the third quarter and was down on the field for nearly 10 minutes. He was eventually taken away in an ambulance. He had a concussion.

In Lincoln, Neb., Taylor Martinez ran for 157 yards and two touchdowns and Nebraska's defense intercepted Nathan Enderle five times and had seven sacks as the Cornhuskers defeated Idaho.
