Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor passes Archie Griffin, hitting all sorts of career milestones
Jonathan Taylor is incredible. He’s great. He’s one of the best to ever do it. He can do it all.
You get the point. You know all of this about the Wisconsin running back already. But as his career goes on as a Badger, the more you realize just how good and productive he’s been.
On Saturday, against Nebraska, Taylor not only got to 165 rushing yards in the first three quarters, but he also scored his 50th touchdown from scrimmage and passed Ohio State’s Archie Griffin for second all-time in Big Ten career rushing:

His 50th score came with 4:50 remaining in the third quarter on an 11-yard run, giving the Badgers a 34-14 lead:

As Brian Mason pointed out, Taylor is still over 1,500 yards away from catching former Badger Ron Dayne atop the B1G list. Taylor, most likely, would need to return for his senior season if he wanted to pass the Wisconsin great.
