Wisconsin running back Gordon to return to school for junior season

Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon

MADISON, Wis. -- Running back Melvin Gordon will return to Wisconsin for his junior season in 2014.

A 1,400-yard rusher, Gordon said in a statement released by the team Friday that he had room for growth, and that he hoped to get the 19th-ranked Badgers back to the Big Ten title game. He also cited a desire to complete his degree.

Third-year sophomore Gordon is half of Wisconsin's potent one-two backfield punch with senior James White. Gordon's 8.31 yards per rush career average leads active major college players.

Head coach Gary Andersen last week said he gave Gordon his OK to seek an NFL draft evaluation, but encouraged him to return to school.

The Badgers (9-3) are preparing to play No. 8 South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1.
