Jonathan Taylor named Big Ten Running Back of the Year
MADISON, Wis. — Badgers running back Jonathan Taylor was named Ameche-Dayne Big Ten Running Back of the Year Wednesday afternoon.
The junior tailback won the award for the second year in a row behind a 1,761-yard season where he rushed for 20 touchdowns and caught five in the air. That’s actually the fewest yards of his three seasons in Madison, where he set a NCAA record for most rushing yards through three seasons.
Two Badgers. Two of the best to ever do it.@JayT23 has certainly earned his place in their company
