A big part of Wisconsin’s turnaround this season has been true freshman running back Braelon Allen.
The 17-year-old running back topped 100 yards for the fifth consecutive game during Wisconsin’s route of Rutgers today.
He finished the game with 15 carries, 129 yards and 1 touchdown. The performance moves his season totals to 93 carries, 661 yards, 7.1 yards per carry and 6 rushing touchdowns. Impressive numbers for anybody, let alone a true freshman.
Allen’s performance today made him the first Wisconsin freshman to top 100 yards in five straight games since Badger great Anthony Davis did it back in 2001. As was the case with Melvin Gordon’s record-setting game years back, Allen did it in only three quarters.
