Taylor joins fab froshes with century mark
Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor crossed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the first quarter Saturday, in his seventh game of the season. That matches the FBS record for fewest games needed by a freshman to reach the 1,000-yard plateau. Taylor also has the most rushing yards through seven games by a freshman in Big Ten history.
