Here are a couple of eye-poppers for you:
- Auburn quarterback Cam Newton is 197 yards away from breaking the NCAA single season record for most rushing yards by a quarterback. Air Force’s Beau Morgan ran for 1,494 yards in 1996. Newton, with three games remaining, has 1,297 yards. However, Morgan probably won’t have the record for much longer. Michigan’s Denard Robinson has 1,417 yards with three games remaining.
- Newton and Robinson are tied for the FBS lead this season with 43 carries of 10 yards or longer.
Two players in one season breaking a fourteen-year old record? Watson, the game is afoot.
