MADISON -

Wisconsin is back from a bye week eager to get back on a winning track.

Coach Gary Andersen says sophomore running back Melvin Gordon is fine after he left the loss to Ohio State two weeks ago with a knee injury.

The Big Ten's leading rusher is expected to rejoin James White in the Badgers' backfield.

Wisconsin (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) is also expected to have other reinforcements when No. 19 Northwestern visits on Saturday with tight end Jacob Pedersen and receiver Kenzel Doe expected back from injuries as well.

Andersen says he used the bye week in part to look at some tweaks in areas where the Badgers need to improve, such as creating turnovers or getting better on third downs.
