CFB Social: Badgers' Melvin Gordon gets Tecmo Bowl treatment

The College Football 24/7 home page and @NFLCFB Twitter account are great ways to keep up with all the major news surrounding the college game. But what about the things that pop up on social media and don't make the headlines?

Well, we've come to answer that call by scouring Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social-media networks most coaches can't pronounce to find some of the best posts. Here are some of the things that caught our eye this week:

Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon ran wild against Nebraska last week to set a new FBS record for most rushing yards in a single game. Just a few days later, an enterprising Badgers fan commemorated the feat by immortalizing Gordon's performance against the Cornhuskers in the classic video game Tecmo Bowl.

Speaking of Wisconsin running backs, here's what Badgers great Ron Dayne posted on Twitter this week. Gordon, however, said this week on the CFB 24/7 Podcast that he's not a fan of being compared to Dayne.

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen is in the thick of the College Football Playoff race, but still found time to stop by a class to give a lecture before finals.

We're sure NFL Network's Rich Eisen would approve of the message sent by Utah special-teams folks.

It's rivalry week around Los Angeles ahead of Saturday's USC-UCLA game, and the city is decking itself out as a result.

San Francisco 49ers guard Jonathan Martin, who starred at Stanford, has a not-so-subtle message to Cal fans ahead of "The Big Game" this week.

Buffalo isn't the only place in the country to see a ton of snow fall on a stadium this week.

North Carolina's helmets for its Thursday night game against Duke were something else.

Some people with too much time on their hands discovered a goose trying to "swim" on the blue turf of Boise State's stadium.

What's it like to jump out of a plane and land at an SEC stadium? Well, check out these Paracommandos landing at Alabama's Bryant-Denny.
