The Badgers play at Iowa on Saturday.  Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon nearly went to Iowa.

The Hawkeyes will soon get to see what they missed out on.

Gordon, a sophomore who reneged on a verbal commitment to Iowa in favor of the 22nd-ranked Badgers (5-2, 3-1 Big Ten), has emerged as the nation's most productive running back heading into Saturday's game in Iowa City.

Gordon has run for 1,012 yards on 9.5 yards per carry and has at least 140 yards six times in seven games.

But Iowa (5-3, 2-2) leads the nation with just two touchdowns rushing allowed and is 12th at just 18.1 points allowed per game.
