Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor set a huge college football record during a win over Purdue on Saturday night.

Taylor, who is without a doubt the best running back in America, now has 12 games of at least 200 rushing yards, which is an FBS record. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

This is such an awesome record. The man is only a junior, which means if he didn’t play another snap this season, he’d average four 200+ yard games a season in his career.

That number is simply mind-boggling. The man is a terror when it comes to lighting up defenses, and I love to see it.

I’ve honestly never seen a more patient runner in my life. The way he waits for stuff to develop on the field before making his move is simply absurd.

Add in the fact he’s put up these numbers against loaded boxes makes it all that much more incredible. Taylor has never had an elite quarterback during his time at Wisconsin.

That let defenses stack up against the Badgers. Still doesn’t matter. Taylor tears them up regularly.

Props to Taylor. He represents the program in the right way, and he’s a dominating force on the field. He’s one of the easiest guys to cheer for in the history of college football.
