Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor said he plans to play in the Badgers' bowl game before the junior announces whether he will enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
"I played with these guys this season to earn the right to have a bowl game," Taylor told reporters after the Badgers' 34-21 loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday night. "Especially after today, I want to help these guys finish it out right."
Taylor is projected to be a late-first or second-round pick by most draft analysts and is widely expected to forgo his senior year to enter the NFL.
Taylor rushed for 148 yards and a touchdown against the Buckeyes on Saturday, but managed just 13 yards on seven carries in the second half. However, he still became only the seventh player in FBS history to reach 6,000 career rushing yards.
If Taylor does play in Wisconsin's bowl game, he will enter it with 6,080 career yards. He joined former Badger Ron Dayne (7,125 career yards) in the 6,000-yard club, giving Wisconsin the only school with two players on the list.
