Gordon sets NCAA single-game rush record

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon ran for 408 yards through three quarters Saturday against Nebraska, to break LaDainian Tomlinson’s single-game major college football rushing record with 15 minutes still to go.

Gordon set the mark on a 26-yard touchdown on the final play of the third quarter to give the 22nd-ranked Badgers a 52-17 lead on the 11th-ranked Cornhuskers.

It was Gordon’s fourth touchdown run of the night. He had 25 carries.

Gordon did not re-enter the game when Wisconsin started its first series of the fourth quarter.

The record had stood since Nov. 20, 1999, when Tomlinson had 406 yards on 43 carries for TCU against UTEP.
