Congratulations to Senior WR #80 Kenny Bell. Coming into the Wisconsin game, Bell had 2,478 career receiving yards-one yard short of Johnny Rodgers all-time record. Bell's 12-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter of the Wisconsin game set a new Husker record. Bell currently has a career high 18 touchdown receptions and five, 100 yard receiving games. Congrats Kenny. GBR
Nebraska capitalized on three first-quarter fumbles to take the lead 17-3. After that, it was all about Wisconsin RB #25 Melvin Gordon. Gordon ran for an amazing 408 yards on 25 carries scoring 4 touchdowns setting a new NCAA FBS single-game rushing record. The Badgers defeated the Huskers 59-24. The win put the Badgers in first place in the BIG West with a 5-1 conference record. The Huskers are currently tied for second with Minnesota. Both have conference records of 4-2. Congratulations to Melvin Gordon on an outstanding game.
