A legendary Wisconsin RB loved the effort from the Badger RB’s today

·1 min read

As they have down countless times over the past few decades, Wisconsin football got a Big Ten win behind their ground game. The Badgers ran the football, then ran the football, then ran the football some more in a 30-13 win over Purdue that pulled Wisconsin (4-3) to above .500 for the first time all season.

The Badgers’ one-two punch of Chez Mellusi and Braelon Allen combined to run for 249 yards on just 39 carries as the two totaled three touchdowns on the ground. Both Mellusi and Allen eclipsed 140 rushing yards on the afternoon.

The play of the Badger running backs inspired some Tweets from one of the best to ever do it in Madison, Wisconsin. 1999 Heisman Trophy Winner Ron Dayne loved the effort of the Wisconsin rushing attack, and was sure to call it out on Twitter during the game:

Dayne made sure to tag Braelon Allen after one of his two touchdown runs:

The Badger RB's went 94 yards on just three plays for a third-quarter score:

Even the defense got love from the Badger legend:
