What A Performance!

Melvin Gordon is one hell of a running back and now is a record setting running back.
From ESPN:  Melvin Gordon had one magnificent day.
Gordon eclipsed the single-game mark held since 1999 by TCU's LaDainian Tomlinson by 2 yards, setting the new standard on a 26-yard touchdown run on the final play of the third quarter and his last carry of the game.
"Yeah, I didn't even know I was close to the record," Gordon said. "I was kind of just running away."
Outdueling Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah in a matchup of star running backs, Gordon had two fumbles before helping the Badgers (8-2, 5-1) roar past the Cornhuskers (8-2, 4-2) with 49 straight points.
The star junior torched what had been a staunch Nebraska defense on 25 carries and delivered an emphatic statement in the Heisman Trophy race.
Abdullah finished with 69 yards on 18 attempts.
The game had been billed in part as a footrace between Gordon and Abdullah for Heisman votes.
It ended up being Gordon by a landslide.
Can we say Heisman?
