SDSU’s Donnel Pumphrey Breaks NCAA Rushing Record

San Jose State v San Diego State

San Diego State University running back Donnel Pumphrey became the all-time NCAA leading rusher in the 4th quarter of a win against Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl. Pumphrey passed former Wisconsin running back Ron Dayne to become the all-time leading rusher in NCAA history and finishes his career with 6,405 rushing yards.

Pumphrey will leave the Aztecs and enter the NFL Draft. CBS Sports currently has him ranked as the 145th best player in the class but he is not in the top 10 of draft eligible running backs in this years class that features the likes of Leonard Fournette, Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Royce Freeman and others.
