MELVIN GORDON RUMORS

Maryland knows it must stop Gordon, Badgers' run game

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Maryland's defense has one imposing objective Saturday at Wisconsin: neutralize running back Melvin Gordon and the nation's leading rushing attack. The Terrapins (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten) can become bowl eligible for a second straight season with a win over the Badgers (4-2, 1-1).

Badgers' Gordon has charged back into Heisman contention

MADISON, Wis. -- When Melvin Gordon ran for 38 yards against lowly FCS foe Western Illinois earlier this season, his Heisman Trophy hopes appeared all but dashed. But when Gordon followed up that performance with an astounding 254-yard, five-touchdown day against Bowling Green, his name slowly, methodically began to climb back into the Heisman race. One month later, and Gordon, Wisconsin...

Wisconsin's Gordon geared up for season's 2nd half

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon felt no shame rooting for Nebraska. The nation's leading rusher likely doesn't cheer often for the Cornhuskers. But Nebraska handed Northwestern its second league loss this weekend, putting Wisconsin right back into the Big Ten West race because the Badgers' only conference loss this season was to the Wildcats. The goal...

Where Does Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon Rank in Heisman Race?

The first four weeks of the 2014 college football season are in the books and the Heisman Trophy race is already starting to take shape. It’s obviously still early and several of the Top 25 teams have yet to face serious tests, but Heisman campaigns are fed in the first half of the season when star players at skill positions often feast on less-than-impressive non-conference opponents...

Vine: Bowling Green’s Defense Could Not Take Down Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon is a monster. So far today, Gordon has rushed for 253 yards and five touchdowns on 13 carries against Bowling Green, and the game is only in the third quarter.
