Huskers say they're ready for Wisconsin run game this time

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska knows what's coming and believes it's ready. The Cornhuskers knew last year, too, but definitely weren't prepared for Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon to run for an FBS-record 408 yards and four touchdowns in a demoralizing 35-point loss in Madison.

Melvin Gordon sends heartfelt message to Wisconsin

New Chargers running back, Melvin Gordon was an absolute star at Wisconsin. He’s the owner of every major rushing record at Wisconsin and was a Heisman finalist last year after rushing for 2,587 yards and a stunning 29 touchdowns.

WATCH: Melvin Gordon Destroys Auburn with Epic TD Run

Some said Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon was overrated. Some said he wouldn’t produce at a high level in the Big 10. Heck, some have even said he’s not going to be a good pro. We wonder whether those people watched Gordon’s ridiculous touchdown run against the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day.

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon Says Pittsburgh’s Paul Chryst Would Be A “Great” Hire For The Badgers

In all likelihood, Melvin Gordon’s final game as a Wisconsin Badger will come playing under Barry Alvarez, who is coaching the team’s bowl game against Auburn Jan. 1. Gordon, a redshirt junior, is likely to declare for the NFL following this season.  So, the Badgers’ Heisman finalist doesn’t really have to worry about who will be replacing departed coach Gary Andersen.
