Stop me if you've heard this before: Melvin Gordon is really fast.
The Wisconsin star running back flashed his speed, and incredible athleticism, on a highlight-reel touchdown run in the second quarter vs. Nebraska on Saturday afternoon.
From his own 38-yard line, Gordon took the fly sweep to the right, sprinted past Nebraska defenders and hurdled the only Cornhusker with any chance to bring him down.
Gordon's speed was impressive, his effortless hurdle was impressive, but his ability to keep up his speed after landing the hurdle was, perhaps, most impressive.
Seriously, there wasn't a Nebraska defender anywhere close to bringing down Gordon.
This wasn't Gordon's only highlight run of the first half; in fact, he surpassed the 200-yard mark late in the second quarter.
