What two college players in 2014 broke the FBS single-game rushing record in back-to-back weeks?


Melvin Gordon and Samaje Perine. Gordon ran for 408 yards against Nebraska, and Perine the following week ran for 427 yards against Kansas. These running backs will play against each other for the first time on Sunday when Washington plays at Los Angeles. Prior to these two, the single-game rushing record belonged to LaDainian Tomlinson, who like Gordon was a first-round pick of the Chargers.
