Jonathan Taylor plans to keep soaking it all in at Wisconsin

The longest run of Jonathan Taylor's still-young college career came right around the time he started to notice defenses paying more attention to him.

Wisconsin’s star freshman running back was in the middle of an eye-popping, 249-yard rushing performance against Nebraska in early October when he took a handoff late in the second quarter. He shuffled his feet in the backfield just long enough to allow a blocker in front of him to slip off a double-team and seal a linebacker downfield. Taylor shot through the newly creased hole, shook off an arm tackle and sprinted the rest of the way to a 75-yard touchdown.
