After a record setting day in Wisconsin 's 55-20 win over Indiana in Big Ten football action last Saturday, sophomore wide receiver David Gilreath was honred by the Big Ten Conference as its Co-Offensive Player of the Week. Gilreath rushed for a career high 168 yards and scored his first two rushing touchdowns of his career.
Gilreath totaled 235 all-purpose yards and averaged 21.0 yards per carry. He sparked a second-half offensive explosion by breaking loose for a 90-yard scoring sprint less than two minutes into the third quarter. The 90-yard score was the longest running play for the Badgers since 1963, when Tom Brigham went 91 yards against Western Michigan.
The Badgers are back home this week to host Minnesota at Camp Randall Stadium.
