Inscription.  Considered one of the greatest athletes in Wisconsin Badger history, Ron Dayne ran through the competition on his way to an incomparable collegiate career. As a four-year started for the Badgers, Dayne finished his career as the NCAA's All-Time Leader in Rushing Yards (7,125 including Bowl Games) and led his teams to back-to-back Rose Bowl victories, earning the honor of Rose Bowl MVP both times. Dayne is one of only eight players in NCAA history to rush for over 1,000 yards in each of his four seasons and his legendary Rose Bowl performances helped make him the sole representative for the game's 1990s All-Century Class. Dayne capped his career as a Badger by leading the nation in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns during the 1999 season before winning the Heisman Trophy, only the second Heisman Trophy in school history. A three-time All-Big Ten selection and a Consensus All-American, Dayne had his number retired at Camp Randall Stadium in 2007. Ron Dayne will undoubtedly be known as one of the greatest college football players of all-time. Inducted 2017
