Video: Chris Borland forces 14th career fumble, ties Big Ten record

One of the most underrated defensive players in the nation just put his stamp on the record books. Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland not only tackled Minnesota running back David Cobb four yards behind the line of scrimmage, but he forced a fumble on the play as well.

It was the senior’s 14th career forced fumble – tied for the most in Big Ten history.

The play gave the ball back to the Badgers’ dominant running game in the third quarter of what became a dominant, 20-7 win. Minnesota’s only score came on an interception returned for a touchdown. Borland’s defense kept the Gophers’ offense off the board completely.

After the fact, Minnesota coach Jerry Kill had extremely high praise for Borland.

    Great player but unfortunately for him Buffalo’s Kahlil Mack forced 3 Fumbles last Tuesday night to increase his total to 16 and give him sole possession of the NCAA record.
