Taylor set career highs with 33 carries and 253 rushing yards and matched a career best with three rushing touchdowns in Wisconsin’s 45-14 win over New Mexico at Camp Randall Stadium.
Taylor became the eighth player in program history to rush for 250 or more yards in a game and the first since Melvin Gordon did so against Auburn in the 2015 Outback Bowl.
Taylor topped the 100-yard mark for the 12th time in his 16-game UW career, the 150-yard plateau for the sixth time and the 200-yard mark for the fourth time.
It’s the third time that Taylor has earned the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor. He last won it Oct. 9, 2017.
