No. 25 Wisconsin, Gordon Crush Illinois 56-32
Gordon topped 1,000 yards for the season on a 13-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that put the Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten) up 42-17. He finished the chilly, 40-degree night with 1,012 yards for the season. Gordon's touchdown capped the second of two bruising, third-quarter drives that put Illinois away.
