Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor approaching yet another college football record
Jonathan Taylor owns seemingly every rushing record in the book at Wisconsin and in the B1G. Now he has his sights set on Herschel Walker.
Taylor is within 166 rushing yards of Walker for most rushing yards in a career before senior year. Taylor has 5,430 yards while the record stands at 5,596.
With three games left in the regular season, it’s hard imagining Taylor not easily reaching that total. He could possibly get to it this Saturday against Nebraska.
The star Wisconsin back has 1,259 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns this season. He has another 151 yards through the air on 18 receptions and four receiving scores too. Taylor is averaging 6.1 rushing yards per attempt and about 140 rushing yards per game.
Taylor is the second Wisconsin running back on the list of top running backs in terms of rushing yards before senior year. Ron Dayne is third on the list with 5,091 rushing yards.
