Wisconsin running backs have come to play tonight.

The first half of Super Bowl XLII has been an offensive-minded affair. The Eagles are leading the Patriots 22-12 at intermission

Wisconsin running backs have been right in the middle of the offensive outbursts. Both the Eagles' Corey Clement and the Patriots' James White have been huge.

White is leading New England with 34 rushing yards, including a 26-yard touchdown run. He's also caught two passes for 21 yards.

Clement has rushed three times for eight yards, but has made his impact as a receiver. He has 71 yards on two receptions, including a 55-yard catch-and-run on a wheel route.

Not a bad half of work for the former Badgers stars.

You can see each of their big plays below.

We'll have to see what White and Clement come up with in the second half. Have to figure both will be featured prominently.
