Jesse Temple's Oct. 15 Badgers mailbag

Welcome back to another edition of the mailbag. Wisconsin is coming off a 38-28 victory against Illinois, and that can only mean the questions did not come in as fast and as furious.

How the Badgers ran and passed: Game 6

Perhaps it is just me, but numbers fascinate me. So while Melvin Gordon had a big game against Illinois, it is interesting to see exactly where his success came from. And Corey Clement also had a lot of rushing yards, but the stats show when he ran to the left that's when the big plays occurred. Anyway, hope you enjoy the breakdown of this last game against Illinois and the totals...

Where Does Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon Rank in Heisman Race?

The first four weeks of the 2014 college football season are in the books and the Heisman Trophy race is already starting to take shape. It’s obviously still early and several of the Top 25 teams have yet to face serious tests, but Heisman campaigns are fed in the first half of the season when star players at skill positions often feast on less-than-impressive non-conference opponents...

Photo: Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon Credits Teammates For His Huge Day

Wisconsin was expected to handle Bowling Green, but what the Badgers accomplished today on offense is a bit ridiculous.
