MADISON, Wis. -- The numbers will show Corey Clement is accomplishing things only a handful of true freshmen running backs have achieved in the past decade across the Football Bowl Subdivision: 29 carries, 250 yards, three touchdowns in his first two college games.
Clement, Wisconsin's next great running back, is one of just six FBS true freshmen to open a career with consecutive 100-yard rushing games since Oklahoma's Adrian Peterson set an NCAA freshman record by hitting the century mark nine straight times in 2004. Clement also was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for his 149-yard, two-touchdown performance against Tennessee Tech on Saturday.
Perhaps the most astounding footnote to Clement's performance is this: He has yet to record a first-half carry. The only reason he's played enough to set records is because Wisconsin has thoroughly dominated its first two opponents, 93-0, with James White and Melvin Gordon as the Badgers' primary running backs.

Following his second straight 100-yard rushing performance, Wisconsin true freshman running back Corey Clement gets rewarded from the Big Ten.

Blackwood is a 3-star prospect by both the 247 composite and the 247 rankings...
MADISON, Wis. -- The snap slipped from James McGuire's hands, and he knew immediately that trouble was imminent. It fluttered in the cool October air, drifting lower and lower toward the turf until Wisconsin punter Drew Meyer bent down to scoop and salvage the play.
Instead, Meyer couldn't handle the ball, he was chased backward and ultimately had the kick partially blocked...
MADISON, Wis. -- Members of Wisconsin's secondary have heard they're not experienced enough to be elite-level defensive backs. They are aware that only one of four players on the field started any games before this year. They recognize questions remain after shutting down two overmatched opponents to open the season.
They are also tired of having to defend themselves off...

After outscoring their first two opponents by a combined 93-0, the Badgers' season really begins this weekend in the desert at Arizona State.
