[October 13, 2008]  MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- With coach Joe Paterno perched in the press box for the second straight week because of a bum leg, Daryll Clark threw for a touchdown and ran for two more as No. 6 Penn State dismantled Wisconsin 48-7 Saturday night.

CivicCornerback Lydell Sargeant had two interceptions -- off of two different Wisconsin quarterbacks -- and Derrick Williams scored again in the return game as the Nittany Lions (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) made another strong statement asserting their place among the nation's top teams.

It is Penn State's 11th 7-0 start under Paterno and first since 1999. The Nittany Lions also won back-to-back Big Ten road games for the first time since '99.

It was the second straight home loss and most lopsided loss since 1989 for Wisconsin (3-3, 0-3).
