Oklahoma Sooners RB Sameje Perine has set a brand new FBS rushing record for yards in a single game with 427 in a single game, shattering the record that was broken just last week.
The 427 yards in a single game mark also obliterates the Oklahoma record held by RB Adrian Peterson and the Big XII conference record.
Last week the FBS record for rushing yards in a game was set by Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon, who broken LaDanian Tomlinson’s record of 406 with his 408 yard performance against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The NCAA Division I record is currently held by North Carolina A&T RB Maurice Hicks, who set the mark at 437 in 2001. And the NCAA all-time rushing record for all conferences is held by Heidelberg Student Princes RB Cartel Brooks, who set the mark at 465 just last year.
