Wisconsin star running back Melvin Gordon is doing what we all expected him to do. Coming off his Heisman worthy season, Gordon rushed for 2,336 yards in 307 attempts scoring 26 touchdowns in a season that was clearly the best he ever had in college. Gordon has decided to capitalize on his great year and take his game to the next level.
