Gordon, Wisconsin run over Auburn in Outback Bowl

TAMPA BAY, Florida (AP) – Melvin Gordon rushed for an Outback Bowl-record 251 and three touchdowns and Rafael Gaglianone kicked a 25-yard field goal in overtime to give No. 17 Wisconsin a 34-31 victory over No. 19 Auburn.

Gordon scored on runs of 25, 53 and 6 yards, bouncing back from a subpar performance in the Big Ten championship game to threaten Barry Sanders’ FBS single-season rushing record.

The Badgers star finished with 2,587 yards in 14 games – second most in FBS history behind what Sanders did in 11 games in 1988.
