Will Badgers be chasin' Jason (Ford)?

Daniel Dufrene will start at tailback at Wisconsin Saturday. But who finishes, and more importantly, who gets to carry the load will be determined by who produces. ``Absolutely,'' running backs coach Reggie Mitchell said. ``Whoever's hot will be the guy that will play.'' Ford, the true freshman from Belleville, Ill., made the most of his opportunity vs. Indiana last week, and wound up delivering 172 yards and three touchdowns. ``We just had a feeling Jason would be able to give us a little something different. That's why he got the opportunity to go in early.'' Look for Ford to get some early opportunities against the Badgers, who had difficulty last week with Iowa's Shonn Greene, a short, thick, tough runner who's hard to bring down. Ford also has those attributes.
