Melvin Gordon, Ohio State in the polls & more in Monday's Big Ten links

So, Melvin Gordon had the FBS single-game rushing mark for one week, as Oklahoma’s Samaja Perine broke it on Saturday with 427 vs. Kansas. Here he is talking about it. Of course, loss of the record doesn’t do a thing to diminish what Gordon has done. Just ask Tom Oates of Madison.com. Oates notes that Heisman candidacies aren’t constructed solely of numbers.

To get a sense of just how long ago Ohio State’s last Big Ten loss was, here’s some context. It’s been 1,093 days. Ohio State quarterbacks have accounted for 132 touchdowns. Devin Gardner was wearing No. 7, his first of three numbers. Jared Sullinger was in his final year in Columbus. Nick Swisher was still with the New York Yankees. Robert Griffin III was on his way to winning the Heisman

GIF: Solomon Vault's facemask keeps getting in the way on the sideline

This GIF, courtesy of sbnation.com, is too good not to share. That’s Northwestern true freshman running back Solomon Vault on the bench Saturday in West Lafayette, Indiana, trying to quench his thirst. Only problem is, his helmet – err, facemask – kept getting in the way. Hey, at least Vault had his helmet on and was ready to go should his number be called. The coaching staff has to like that.
