XN Sports Heisman Watch: Gordon, Barrett Putting Pressure On Mariota


Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon – Gordon still leads the nation in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns with 2,109 and 25 respectively. He ran for 200 yards in Wisconsin’s 26-24 victory over Iowa on Saturday and has now rushed for 813 yards and seven TDs in his last three games while rushing for at least 200 yards in each one of those contests. Gordon and the Badgers host Minnesota on Saturday with the Big Ten West Division title on the line. A win there and Wisconsin gets a showdown with Ohio State in the Big Ten title game, which would be another big stage for Gordon to state his Heisman case.
