Melvin Gordon Tramples Nebraska For Single Game FBS Rushing Record

Melvin Gordon only played three quarters today, because his Wisconsin Badgers no longer needed him when they went up 52-17 over Nebraska. But that's okay, because in that three-fourths of a game, Melvin Gordon broke LaDainian Tomlinson's all-time FBS single game rushing record with 408 ground yards.

Arizona Loses To Wisconsin; Students And Riot Police Face Off

Arizona lost 64-63 in overtime to the Wisconsin Badgers earlier tonight for a spot in the Final Four, and now the campus is kind of a shit show.

Struggling Wisconsin Player Resorts To Jumpshot Free Throws

There was a time when Wisconsin guard/forward Ryan Evans wasn't the sort of shooter who'd have trouble standing on a dock and tossing a ball into Lake Mendota. He shot 73 percent from the line last year, 81 percent in conference play. But the yips overtook him this season, and going into last night's game against… » 2/27/13 11:05am 2/27/13 11:05am

Four of the top five teams in college hoops lost on the road this week. When that happens, students storm courts. Illinois hits a last-second bunny to break a tie with No. 1 Indiana?
