Melvin Gordon is now fourth All-Time in FBS for rushing yards

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon moved his season total to 2,260 rushing yards.

That’s the fourth-highest season total in FBS history, behind only Oklahoma State’s Barry Sanders (2,628 in 1988), UCF’s Kevin Smith (2,567 in 2007) and
USC’s Marcus Allen (2,342 in 1981).

All three of those backs were drafted high and I expect Gordon to go high as well.
