Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson threw the ball 17 times with only one pass falling incomplete- his last throw with the game sealed.
Everything else the Badgers did worked well.
Wisconsin's high-powered offense rolled over the Gophers, as Wilson threw for four touchdowns and junior running back Montte Ball scored on three occasions.
A small glimpse of hope came at the second-half kickoff when Minnesota's Duane Bennett returned the ensuing kick for a touchdown.
But any momentum garnered was stifled by a Badgers defense that was stout against the run and the pass.
The Gophers will look to regroup as they face the Northwestern Wildcats next Saturday at Ryan Field.
