Chez Mellusi hurdles defender during impressive TD drive for Wisconsin
Chez Mellusi showed fans that he can fly on Saturday. Mellusi leapt over a Georgia Southern defender and later scored a few plays later.
The rushing attack for Wisconsin is dangerous for opposing defenses. Braelon Allen and Mellusi are tough to stop on the ground.
The crowd’s reaction was an appropriate response to the athletic feat that Mellusi pulled off. An audible gasp was heard at Camp Randall.

After jumping over another human being, Mellusi went between the trenches to find the endzone during the fourth quarter.
Mellusi played in 9 games for the Badgers last season. He finished with 473 yards rushing and 3 total touchdowns.
Allen receives a lot of praise, and deservingly so, but Mellusi reminded everyone that defenses need to focus on more than just one running back on Luke Fickell’s offense.
