WATCH: Braelon Allen’s patience leads to the longest play of his young Wisconsin career

·1 min read

While Leo Chenal stole the show defensively, it was freshman running back Braelon Allen who paced Wisconsin’s offense to a 20-14 win over Army.

For the second consecutive week, Allen eclipsed 100 yards on the ground, rushing for 108 yards on 16 carries. The 17-year-old broke the seal, scoring Wisconsin’s first touchdown on the longest play of his young career. The Fond Du Lac product showed a little bit of everything on his 33-yard touchdown run, as he displayed the patience to read that an Army defender broke contain paired with the burst to explode around the outside for a score.

Despite not receiving a carry in the third quarter, the true freshman was Wisconsin’s most electric offensive weapon in a game where the Badgers again relied on the rushing attack of Allen and Chez Mellusi to pace their offense.
