Wisconsin's huge offensive line, three-headed rushing attack and All-American tight end make it easy to overlook Badgers quarterback Scott Tolzien. But Wisconsin players and coaches don't. Tolzien, a fifth-year senior, won the team's offensive most-valuable-player award after leading the Badgers to an 11-1 record, a share of the Big Ten Conference title and their first Rose Bowl berth since 2000. It's not as if Tolzien has flown under the radar ? he leads the nation in completion percentage and won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as the nation's top senior quarterback ?

The Times' Chris Dufresne unveils his preseason college football top 25, one day (and team) at a time. No. 13 Wisconsin Wisconsin could be charged, but probably not convicted, with fraud last year after finishing 10-3 without a regular-season victory to brag about — unless 37-0 over Purdue counts. The Badgers mostly won the games they were supposed to win — surviving in double overtime at home against Fresno State — and somewhat understandably took it on the double chins versus Ohio State, Iowa and Northwestern.

Russell Wilson did not believe it. During workouts last summer, Wisconsin running back Montee Ball informed the recently arrived quarterback that he had never caught a touchdown pass for the Badgers. "You've got to be kidding me, right?" said Wilson, who transferred from North Carolina State. Ball wasn't joking. "I was like 'Man, I've gotta get this guy the ball,'" Wilson reflected this week. "He's got to find different ways to get into the end zone. " The quarterback did not waste any time coming through.

Tank Carder's best trick sounded like something befitting the former BMX world champion: wide dogs blitz. Not that the Texas Christian linebacker executed flawlessly on perhaps the biggest play in school history. Carder was supposed to hurtle toward the Wisconsin backfield from the left side as the Badgers tried a tying two-point conversion with two minutes to play Saturday in the Rose Bowl. When his progress was impeded by a beefy lineman, Carder leaped and knocked Scott Tolzien's pass to the turf.

The plays sent in from Wisconsin's sideline didn't vary much. During the second half of their victory over Michigan last month, the Badgers ran the ball 29 consecutive times. Not that the Wisconsin offensive linemen got excited, or wondered in the huddle whether the coaches might mix in a pass. They barely even noticed. "We just listen for the call," tackle Gabe Carimi said. "We're not thinking about getting any glory. " Wisconsin's offensive linemen have received it anyway, flattening opponents while leading the Badgers to the Rose Bowl for the first time since the 2000 game.

What a boomerang of a few years it has been for Matt Flynn. The former Green Bay backup quarterback has re-signed with the Packers after a series of false starts with Seattle, Oakland and Buffalo. Flynn will back up Scott Tolzien, a promoted practice-squad player who was bumped up because of injuries to starter Aaron Rodgers and backup Seneca Wallace. In his previous go-round with the Packers, Flynn backed up Rodgers and won a Super Bowl ring after the 2010 season. He caught the eye of other teams that season when he threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in a Week 16 game against Detroit.

We say Wisconsin and you say: girth, milk, linemen, cheese, boring, proficient and power tools. "Wisconsin is what it is," Badgers Coach Bret Bielema said at Big Ten media day. "We're not real sexy. I always say we're not the first girl taken for the prom, but we're not the last. " Someone just slapped lipstick on Porky Pig. This may be the first year Wisconsin has ever been accused of being intriguing. College football's most exciting off-season move did not involve a coach.
