Madison, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and offensive lineman Rob Havenstein have each been named to the Big Ten Conference's preseason 'Players to Watch,' list, it was announced on Monday afternoon.

Gordon was the Badgers' top running back in the 2013 season, rushing for 1,650 yards and 12 touchdowns. Havenstein, meanwhile, was part of an offensive line that led a rushing attack to 6.6 yards per carry and allowed only 16 sacks all season.

Wisconsin was (9-3) overall and (6-2) against conference opponents last season, with the Badgers' fist game of 2014 scheduled for Aug. 30 against LSU.
