In one of the biggest conference games to start the Big 10, a strong Heisman candidate stepped up and made a statement. Jonathan Taylor of the Wisconsin Badgers plowed through what was expected to be a stingy Michigan Wolverine defense for over 200 yards. 203 to be exact, on 23 carries for two TDs. His longest was a spectacular 72 yard scamper in the first quarter to set the tone for the game. He even missed the 2nd quarter with a cramp, but returned in the second half to help ensure the 35-14 conference opening victory in one of their toughest projected games. The win thrust the Badgers up to Number 8 and solidifies their favorite status in the Big 10 West. Taylor has averaged over 2000 yards his first two seasons and is likely to find himself in New York competing for the Heisman, which he finished 9th last year. Taylor is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
