The Badgers allowed Indiana running back Anthony Thompson to rush for 377 yards in a game on November 11.[2] This broke the NCAA Division I-A record and stood as a Big Ten Conference single-game rushing record for 25 years until it was finally broken by Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin) in 2014.[3] However, the 377 yards still stands as an Indiana Hoosiers football school record.
