Matt Lepay recaps the win over South Florida and talks about how Jonathan Taylor may be even better in 2019
Read about the game from UWBadgers.com: "TAMPA, Fla.—Jonathan Taylorrushed for 135 yards and scored a career-best four touchdowns, helping No. 19 Wisconsin open the season with a 49-0 rout of South Florida on Friday night.
Taking up where he left off a year ago, when he lead the nation with 2,194 yards and 16 touchdowns, Taylor scored on runs of 37 and 38 yards.
The junior running back also had the first two receiving TDs of his career, scooting 36 yards up the left sideline after taking a quick flip from UW quarterbackJack Coanand later extending the ball over the goal line on a 12-yard reception that gave the Badgers a 28-0 halftime lead.
Taylor joined Melvin Gordon (2014) and Ron Dayne (1996, 1999) as the only Badgers to top 2,000 yards rushing in a season in 2018, and he looks like he's primed for another big year after gaining 100-plus for the 23rd time in 28 career games."
