Rush lead badger Chase Melucci exits Rutgers without leaving

Melusi is leading the Badgers for over 200 yards, even though Brelon Allen finished with 129 yards against Rutgers. Melucci’s influence on the offense is almost undeniable since he transferred from Clemson this summer. He has been stable in a position that has been in flux from dismissals and transfers, and the Badgers have relied on Melucci’s steady play throughout the season.

Teammates such as Christ, running back coach Gary Brown and Allen, senior tight end Jake Ferguson and senior fullback John Chanel all entered the medical tent to examine Melusi.

They received several high-fives and hugs while walking down the edge on their way to the locker room.

If Melusi misses an extended time because of his injury, Allen will be ready to bear even more weight in the backfield. His performance against Rutgers (4-5, 1-5) extended his streak of 100-yard games to five in a row.

University of Wisconsin freshman tailback Brelon Allen speaks to the media after the Badgers beat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights 52-3 at SHI Stadium on Saturday, November 6, 2021 in Piscataway, NJ.

Anthony Davis is the first true freshman since 2001 to match five consecutive 100-yard games on the ground. He punched in a 1-yard touchdown on the series in which Melucci was injured.

“It’s terrible, you know?” Allen said. “Everyone loves Chase, great guy to be around. It’s scary to see him go down like this and not get back in the game. Prayers go out to him and hope he’s doing well.”
