Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor broke Adrian Peterson's record for most rushing yards by a freshman Saturday during the second quarter of the Orange Bowl. Peterson rushed for 1,925 yards a freshman for Oklahoma in 2004. Taylor gashed Miami early, despite losing a fumble in the first quarter, racking up 85 yards before the break, surpassing Peterson's previous record in the process. Taylor, a true freshman, entered the game having eclipsed 100 yards nine times this season.
