Wisconsin running backs have historically played very well against nebraska... no different for jonathan taylor - who picked up more than 200 yards in his only two games against the huskers in 2017 and 2018..
But today would be a little more special than the other years..
Another trophy game for the badgers - looking to keep the freedom trophy in madison for the seventh straight year..
The defense showed up from the very beginning.
Chris orr getting after nebraska qb adrian martinez.
Five total tackles..
Later - badgers down, 7-0..
But check out aron cruikshank - he'll take it the rest of the way for the 89 yard touchdown..
Tie game... 133 yards for cruickshank on returns today... fast forward to the 2q - badgers down again... jack coan finding aj taylor... he'll break a few tackles here and there... hop over a guy - 55 yard touchdown..
17- 14 wisconsin... now zach baun has had quite a senior season so far..
Should call him sack baun..
Two for him today... then it wouldn't be complete without this guy - jonathan taylor - nice run to the house!
Today jt making history - he has now rushed for 5598 yards - breaking hershel walker's record, who previously was number one... wisconsin beats nebraska and the freedom trophy..nd how special is jt?
Enough to get head coach paul chryst a little emotional after the game... (((paul chryst: "who he is and how he goes about this i think is the thing you appreciate the most and you know it is hard to run the ball and to do what he's been doing, he'd be the first one to say it and knows it takes everyone, right?
I feel blessed being able to be around him and the best part is, we still got more games to play and he is truly special in so many ways."
Jonathan taylor: "they told me after the game.
I didnt' know that was a thing, there's a stat forverything so once they told me afterwards, it was still, i mean jsut to be mentioned with those guys, it's an incredible honor but i celebrated with the o-line afterwards and we got a picture together after i told them, they were like oh we need to get a picture, i was like yeah we do!"))) hershel walker needed more than 1000 attempts to get the record for most yards in three seasons..
Jt did in on his 836th carry..
That's 247 fewer attemptshan the former georgia running back.
We're watching greatness at work here..
Next up, senior day for the badgers..
