A Run for the Record Books

Sept. 19, 2012

Fresno State running back Robbie Rouse became the school's all-time leading rusher last weekend, breaking Ron Rivers' 19 year-old record.

Rouse sits atop the school record books in career rushing yards (3,539), rushing attempts (674) and is tied for the longest rush in school history. His 94-yard TD run against Colorado last weekend propelled him past Rivers in career rushing yards.

The senior from San Diego has the chance to break more records before the year is over. With a nine games left in the regular season, Rouse needs 10 more touchdowns to break Ryan Mathews' all-time mark of 39. He need four more 100-yard rushing games to break Rivers' record of 18 for a career and 1,837 all-purpose yards to break Bernard Berrian's mark of 5,826.

Additionally, if he can reach 1,000 yards rushing this year, which he already has 382 yards in three games, Rouse will become the first tailback in Bulldog history to run for over 1,000 yards in three separate seasons.
