Wisconsin gets back freshman RB for Duke's Mayo Bowl, still without pair of top WRs
Super freshman running back Jalen Berger is out for today’s Duke’s Mayo Bowl game. The Wisconsin star is sidelined although wide receivers Kendric Pryor and Danny Davis are slated to return from injury.
The freshman, a four-star recruit out of New Jersey, leads Wisconsin with 267 rushing yards on 45 carries. He has one rushing touchdown. He hasn’t played since Wisconsin’s Dec. 5 home loss to Indiana, having missed the last two games.
