Gordon Returning to Badgers 12/20/13
MADISON, Wis. - Running back Melvin Gordon will return to Wisconsin for his junior season in 2014. The 1,400-yard rusher says in a statement released by the team that he had room for growth, and that he hoped to get the 19th-ranked Badgers back to the Big Ten title game. Third-year sophomore Gordon is half of Wisconsin's potent one-two backfield punch with senior James White. Gordon's 8.31 yards per rush career average leads active major college players.
