MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- No. 6 Wisconsin is embracing its blue-collar approach.

Coach Bret Bielema (BEE'-leh-mah) compared his Badgers to hourly workers on Monday, saying they get the biggest gains when they work overtime.

Wisconsin (3-0) has had an easy run of early opponents and finishes up the nonconference slate by hosting South Dakota on Saturday. It is expected to be a final tuneup before hosting No. 9 Nebraska on Oct. 1.

Bielema says his team prepares the same way, no matter who the opponent is. The team has Monday off, but many players come in for film study or workouts -- overtime that Bielema says helps them later.
