Williams breaks record with 34th 100-yard game
DETROIT -- Memphis running back DeAngelo Williams set an
NCAA record with his 34th 100-yard rushing game Monday against
Akron in the Motor City Bowl.
Williams shared the record with Archie Griffin of Ohio State and
Tony Dorsett of Pittsburgh, both Heisman Trophy winners in the
mid-1970s. Griffin set the mark in 42 games, and Dorsett matched it
in 43 games -- one fewer than Williams.
Williams, who finished seventh in voting for the Heisman this
year, began his third straight bowl with an NCAA record 7,337
The senior broke Griffin and Dorsett's record on an 18-yard run
in the third quarter, which set up his second touchdown.
