Former Badger running back channels his college days by changing number

By  | 

Former Wisconsin Badger running back Melvin Gordon has changed his number with Los Angeles Chargers. For the past four years, Gordon was wearing number 28. This year, he'll wear number 25, the same number he wore at UW.

Gordon made the announcement in an eight second video on Twitter.

The Kenosha native ran for more than 4,900 yards and 45 rushing touchdowns in four years as a Badger. He was drafted 15th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft by the then San Diego Chargers.

In his four years as a pro, Gordon has rushed for more than 3,600 yards and 38 total touchdowns.
